In an interview with Canal +, the defender of Bayern Munich and the France team Lucas Hernandez was asked about his brother, Theo, author of an excellent season at AC Milan. And on the possibility of seeing the two brothers reunited in the France team, a prospect that delights the versatile Bavarian defender.
Didier Deschamps at the time of choice. The coach of the France team will unveil his list of 26 players on May 18 to compete in Euro 2021. Barring injury, the presence of Lucas Hernandez is beyond doubt. Despite physical glitches which spoiled his first part of the season, the world champion is coming back strong and must not tremble for his place.
Could the list now expanded to 26 players benefit his brother Theo? Aged 23, the left-back shines under the colors of AC Milan but has never been summoned to the Blues. Finding him at the Euro would be a surprise which would obviously delight his brother: “All the brothers would like to play together one day but it will not be for me to choose,” confirmed the Bayern player in an interview with Canal +. He’s having a really big season. I hope he continues like this. “
“It will be complicated”
In the event that Deschamps summons the young Milanese, the two Hernandez brothers will be able to aim together for the title of European champion but also to spend time together: “Too much is not good either, laughs Lucas. For me it would be a dreams of being able to play with my brother. But it will be complicated too. And it will be the choice of the coach. “
Author of 47 appearances with the Lombard club (6 goals), Theo Hernandez has already made calls to Didier Deschamps. “I am waiting, he has not called me yet, declared the Milanese two months ago to the weekly Sportweek. For two years, since I am here (in Milan, editor’s note), I also play to go to selection. I always have the phone in my hand. It’s a dream for me to play with my brother with the France jersey. “
Pending the announcement of the Basque technician’s list, Lucas Hernandez is already thinking of the first meeting at Euro, against Germany on June 15 at the Allianz Arena, his stadium: “It will be a very good match . We haven’t talked about it yet with the Germans (from Bayern), we are still focused on what remains to be played in the Bundesliga. It’s going to be a big game in Munich. With King (Kingsley Coman) and Ben (Benjamin Pavard) “We know the stadium well. It will be nice to participate in this match”, concludes Lucas Hernandez.
