Football careerEdit

Born in Salamanca, Castile and León, Hernández reached Real Madrid's youth academy in 2005 at the age of 16, signing from local UD Salamanca. He made his senior debut in the 2008–09 season with Real Madrid Castilla, in Segunda División B, appearing in 24 games but only starting in three of those.

On 1 February 2011, after having played only ten league matches in one-and-a-half seasons combined, Hernández was loaned to Halmstads BK in Sweden, alongside Castilla teammates Raúl and José Zamora.[1] He returned to his country in the summer, going on to continue competing in the third level in the following years with UD Salamanca, CD Ourense and Burgos CF.

On 31 August 2016, Hernández joined Górnik Łęczna.[2] On 15 June 2017, he moved to Azerbaijan Premier League club Gabala FK on a one-year contract with an optional second year,[3] but left shortly after and returned to the Polish Ekstraklasa with KS Cracovia.[4]

Personal lifeEdit

Guti, who spent the vast majority of his professional career with Real Madrid, is Hernández's cousin.[5]
