Angel Rangel expects Pablo Hernandez to prove a “real nightmare” to Premier League defences this season.
Spanish international Hernandez came off the bench to make his debut in last Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa.
The former Valencia winger showed some neat touches and made some probing runs as the Swans tasted a first defeat under Michael Laudrup.
But Rangel believes club record signing Hernandez will prove a big hit at the Swans following his £5.55million move from the Mestalla.
“Pablo has really made an effect in training already and when he came on against Villa he made an impact and tried everything to help the team,” said Rangel.
“His quality is unbelievable and we have got a special player in Pablo. He will help us a lot this season.
“He is a tricky player who has the quality to score goals and get a lot of assists, and I think he will be an instant hit for us.
“Look at Michu, he made a huge impact on his debut and in the next few games after that, so I won’t be surprised if Pablo is the same.
“He will be a real nightmare for full-backs because he can use both feet, he can really pick out a pass for the striker and his delivery is great.
“With his vision, he has everything a winger needs and that’s why he has played for Valencia in La Liga and for Spain.”
