‘Lost in translation’, ‘Speechless’ – Some Leeds fans call out club after player’s assessment – Vitalfootball

There’s been a lot of change at Leeds United this summer, both coming in and going out.

One move, though, didn’t sit well with a certain member of the Leeds camp – Pablo Hernandez. Speaking during Leeds’ pre-season trip to Australia, the 34-year-old defender spoke about losing such a key part of the team in Pontus Jansson and how he wasn’t too happy about the deal.

He said: “I lost a team-mate and a friend but this is football.

“This can happen. Teams change players. I have lived through this a lot of times in my career. This is football. Obviously, this is a big loss for us but other players come. Obviously, I am not happy because we lost him. But this is football.”

Leeds fans were quick to agree with the midfielder, with a lot of them using the opportunity to call out the club for their transfer policies and how it’s leading them down a dangerous path.

Those sentiments hold particular clout as they are pretty thin when it comes to centre-backs at the moment. Although that one line about players coming in was enough to get one fan excited, hopefully, that doesn’t mean Leeds are done just yet when it comes to bringing in players.

I think there’s a “lost in translation” thing here, I don’t think Pablo is saying he’s “unhappy” about it specifically, he’s just saying that Pontus moving on isn’t something to celebrate..

Would be great if leeds actually got a replacement in as the defence is thin bare and any injuries in that department would be a disaster.

I was furious last summer because we only really had Pontus and Cooper as recognised centre backs. Now I’m just speechless.

Marcelo should listen to him, it is a big loss, and he needs replacing. Seems like pure stubborness at this point. Reminds me of Sarri with Kante, the more people wanted them to make a change, the more bullish they are

Pablo has been found, he was missing for the last 5 games of last season, glad he turned up safe and well ????????

I am with Pablo on this one.
