Pablo Hernández Domínguez (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpaβlo erˈnandeθ]; born 11 April 1985), simply known as Pablo, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Swansea City in the Premier League, as a winger.

Club career


A product of Valencia CF's youth system (operating as striker in the B-team), Pablo was born in Castellón de la Plana, Valencian Community, and made his debuts with the main squad on the last matchday of the 2005–06 season, playing 20 minutes in a 1–2 away loss against CA Osasuna.[2] Midway through the following season he was loaned to Segunda División side Cádiz CF.

In July 2007, Valencia included Pablo in the transfer that brought central defender Alexis from Getafe CF to Mestalla, but would re-buy him for €1 million in July 2008,[3] subsequently signing the player to a six-year contract.[4]

Pablo scored his first goal for Valencia on 27 November 2008, in a 4–0 win over Rosenborg B.K. for the campaign's UEFA Cup, after an individual effort.[5] After having subbed in for Rubén Baraja in the second half of a home fixture against Recreativo de Huelva, he netted his second goal and first in the league, in a 1–1 draw in March 2009; the following month, also as a replacement (now for Joaquín), he added his third, in a 3–1 home win over Sevilla FC – deep into injury time, against ten men.

On 25 April 2009, this time as a starter, Pablo fired the hosts into the 2–1 lead against FC Barcelona, following a run between four players and a one-two with Juan Mata. The match ended 2–2.[6]

On 30 August 2009 Pablo scored the second in 2009–10's opener, against Sevilla, in a 2–0 home triumph.[7] Fully established in the starting XI now over Joaquín, he continued to produce fine displays in this season, including a 40-meter lob against UD Almería in a 3–0 away success.[8]

Pablo scored twice against Club Brugge K.V. in extra time of the UEFA Europa League round-of-32 second leg game played at the Mestalla Stadium on 25 February 2010, for a 3–0 win (3–1 aggregate).[9] In the 2010–11 season, he continued battling with Joaquín for first-choice status; on 7 December 2010, he netted at Old Trafford against Manchester United for the UEFA Champions League, putting the Che 1–0 up at half-time; the match ended 1–1, and the English eventually finished first in the group stage.[10]

Swansea City

Pablo moved to Premier League side Swansea City for three years on 31 August 2012, for a club record fee of £5.55 million.[11] He scored his first official goal against Wigan Athletic on 20 October, helping to a 2–1 home win.[12]

Pablo netted his second goal for the club on 3 November, scoring a late equaliser in a 1–1 draw against Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium.[13]

International career

After close observation by national team boss Luis Aragonés during his time at Getafe, Pablo made it into the 32-man provisional squad for UEFA Euro 2008, but did not make the final cut.

On 5 June 2009 he was called to represent the country at the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup in South Africa, as a replacement for injured Andrés Iniesta,[14] by new boss Vicente del Bosque. On the 20th Pablo made his first appearance for the national team, coming on as a substitute for club teammate David Villa in the 60th minute of the last group stage match, a 2–0 success against the hosts.

On 18 November 2009 Pablo scored his first international goal, playing the entire second half of the 5–1 friendly win in Austria and closing the scoresheet.[15]
