Daniel 'Dani' Hernández Santos (born 21 October 1985) is a Venezuelan professional footballer who plays for Real Valladolid in Spain as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Caracas, Hernández spent until the age of nearly 26 in Spanish lower league and amateur football, competing mainly in the Community of Madrid. He represented during that timeframe CF Rayo Majadahonda, CD Guadalajara, CU Collado Villalba, Real Madrid C, Rayo Vallecano B, Real Jaén, Valencia CF Mestalla and Real Murcia, delivering a Man of the match performance on 26 October 2010 in a 0–0 home draw against Real Madrid for the season's Copa del Rey (1–5 aggregate loss);[1][2] additionally, he represented SD Huesca in Segunda División in the first part of the 2009–10 campaign, but his input consisted of two domestic cup appearances.[3]

On 19 August 2011 Hernández signed a 1+2 contract with Real Valladolid, in the second level.[4] He spent the vast majority of his first year as understudy to Jaime but, due to injury to his teammate, excelled in the promotion playoffs as the team returned to La Liga after an two-year absence, conceding only once in four appearances and three starts.[5][6]

Hernández continued to be first-choice in the 2012–13 season, helping the Castile and León outfit retain its league status after ranking in 14th position.[7]

International career[edit]

Hernández made his debut for Venezuela on 7 September 2010, in a 1–0 friendly win with Ecuador.[8] As a backup, he was part of the squad that appeared at the 2011 Copa América in Argentina.
