In a press conference, before the meeting against RB Leipzig this Saturday, at 6.30 p.m., Hansi Flick praised the 25-year-old Frenchman.
“I have yet to announce that Lucas Hernandez will play in place of Alphonso Davies on the left side. I am aware of his good statistics and that is a good thing. Lucas is an extraordinary professional. He is very appreciated within the workforce and the staff. At Bayern we have a lot of players in different positions. It’s not that easy to be in the starting XI all the time. But Lucas Hernandez does it pretty well and he’s very focused on our goals. When he plays, he always gives 100% ” admitted Hans-Dieter Flick.
After a difficult first season at the German club, where he was transferred in the summer of 2019 for the sum of 80 million euros, Lucas Hernandez took a slight ascendancy over his main competitor in defense, the Canadian Alphonso Davies (19 years). This season, the former Atlético Madrid player has played 29 games in all competitions (including 19 in the Bundesliga), for 1 goal and 3 assists (against 27 for the Canadian). The Frenchman is linked to the German club, championship leader ahead of RB Leipzig (2nd), until 2024.
