Valencia's lost star Pablo Hernandez wants more time in his game!
Valencia’s forward Pablo Hernandez was once a star on front of the Spanish outfit has slowly been sidelined as a substitute. More recently he has been further demoted, failing to even make
it into the squad line up. On the issue Hernandez has stressed desire for more first team action. Hernandez specializes as a winger, so this has been one of the reasons for his exclusion.
While talking to media the Spanish international showed displeasure against the management for leaving him out of play at the Mestalla. Hernandez stated that all he wanted to do was play
for Los Che, but that had become near to impossible.
In spite of selling world class players like David Villa to Barcelona and David Silva to Manchester City, Valencia are left with a couple of talented players that are finding it hard to feature
in the first team.
In recent times the former Getafe player; Hernandez has been sidelined by manager Unai Emery. Just last season he played a crucial role helping Els Taronja acquire 3rd position
in the Spanish domestic league, La Liga. This season though his performances have been unstable though he has never been handed enough time to show his true potential.
Last season, 2009-10 Hernandez was an integral part of Valencia having capped 44 times and netting 8 goals. The 25-year-old emerged from Valencia’s youth academy before starting his senior
career in 2004 from Valencia’s B team and staying till 2006.
However from 2004-2005 Hernandez was sent away on season loan to Onda. During the season of 2006-2007 he made his first appearance for Valencia. That lone appearance was all that he played
for that season as he was sent on loan for the rest of the season to Cadiz. At Cadiz Hernandez played in 22 matches and scored 4 times.
With the start of 2007-2008 season Getafe bought the winger. Though he proved to be an asset with 37 caps and 7 goals he was traded off at the end of the season to his mother club, Valencia.
Presently Hernandez has featured in just 7 matches for Valencia. In spite of scoring two goals he has grown out of favour in the eyes of Emery. Hernandez has accused the manager of segregating
him from the first line up however the truth is there and there is little that the coach can do about it.
Though Hernandez wants to play more football coach Unai Emery has been forced to bench the player and instead feature players with more chemistry. This has made Hernandez consider other options.
Earlier in the summers he was linked with a move to Italian powerhouse Juventus; however the most desired option for Hernandez would be to play at home.
Showing his willingness Hernandez stated on the issue, “I am eager to train, I feel in a very good mood, and all I want is to play. The coach decides who plays, and all I can do is stay calm
and keep working, because there will come a time that I can prove what I can do.”
The Spanish international also commented on the rest of Valencia’s campaign this season. He labelled matches against Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona to be crucial in deciding their position at
the end of the season.
Hernandez articulated, “It will be a hard month, but the team has proven that it does not need to be afraid, especially away from home. It will be nice to face Barcelona at the Mestalla, but
first of all we must think of Athletic, as they are a direct rival and to open up distance between us is important.”
