The Spanish midfielder moved from Valencia for a club record £5.5million in August, and believes that the domination of Barcelona and Real Madrid is unhealthy for the wider game in Spain.

He feels that La Liga must follow the example set by the Premier League, where television revenue is more widely distributed than in Spain.

"Real and Barcelona are strong but the rest are in a bad place," Hernandez told The Times.

"Here, the clubs are more balanced in how they share the money from television.

"In Spain, it is too unbalanced. Smaller clubs can't buy players.

"We have got to follow the example set by England."

Hernandez has made 24 appearances for Swansea this season, scoring three goals.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
