Modern day Leeds club legend Hernandez ended five years with the Whites when making an emotional departure in the summer before eventually joining boyhood club Castellon.

The Spanish third tier outfit were at home to Barcelona B this weekend and a group of Whites fans made the trip to watch Hernandez whose side recorded a 2-0 victory.

Hernandez' wife, Mar Garcia, took to Twitter to say: "I heard there is between 30-40 Leeds fans in my city getting ready for the Castellon game this afternoon. #iloveleeds #leedsfans."

Hernandez himself then posted an Instagram story after the game which showed a video of fans holding a Leeds flag singing his name.

Hernandez wrote: "Thanks to the Leeds fans that came today to watch the game!! MOT."

In a separate post, Hernandez wrote: "Plus three!!! (points). Great job everyone. This is the way to go. Thanks to all the fans who have been the 90 minutes supporting."

The victory took Castellon up to 11th place, six points clear of the drop zone.
