Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has suggested to Leeds Live that Pablo Hernandez will be back in action after the two-week international break.

Bielsa made the comments about the attacking midfielder following Leeds’s 2-1 defeat to Millwall away from home at The Den in the Championship at the weekend.

 

Hernandez, who can also operate as a winger, is on the sidelines at the moment with a muscular problem and did not feature against the Lions.

Bielsa has delivered the positive news that the 34-year-old former Valencia and Swansea City star could be back after the international break.

Bielsa told Leeds Live when asked when Hernandez will be back: “Possibility after the break.”

Positive news for Leeds United

Leeds’s defeat to Millwall at the weekend was a disappointing result for the West Yorkshire outfit, and they will be determined to bounce back with victory over Birmingham City at Elland Road in the Championship after the two-week international break.

Hernandez is one of the best and most creative midfielders in the Championship, and the return to action of the 34-year-old after the international break will enhance Leeds’s chances of winning against Birmingham.
