Birth Date:06 October 1997
At AC Milan since:2019
Born in Marseille in October 1997, Theo Hernández, son of French ex-player Jean-François Hernández, and brother to Lucas, began his footballing career in the youth system at Majadahonda. Not long after, he was transfered to Atlético Madrid, where he made his debut in the B squad in the Third division.
After going out on loan to Alavés the following season, he was soon snapped up by Real Madrid after an impressive season. He kicked off his first season for the Galácticos with a win in the European Supercup and finished it off celebrating a Champions League victory. After a year out on loan at Real Sociedad, AC Milan came calling and signed up his services.
If his first season in Milan was good, seven goals and 36 appearances, his second was even better. In helping the Rossoneri get a place back into the Champions League, Theo showed himself to be the best left-back in the league with seven goals in 33 league games (eight in 45 if you count the Coppa Italia and Europe League campaigns). As the proverb says, "all good things come in threes", and so it did in the 2021/22 season; Theo managed to rack up 41 games in all competitions with five goals and ten assists, including one of the most iconic goals of the Scudetto race against Atalanta. He got his first senior cap for France against Finland in September 2021, and a month later his first goal, too, in the Nations League semi-final against Belgium.
