Costacurta names the one thing Hernandez must improve to become ‘extraordinary’

By Isak Möller -

Theo Hernandez has had a great start to his adventure at AC Milan, currently being the joint-top goalscorer of the team with four goals from his left-back position. Of course, he has received a lot of praise for his performances. 

Against Parma, the Frenchman scored the winner, and he followed that up with yet another goal against Bologna yesterday. He has quickly become a fan favourite, as his pace and strength is something that the Rossoneri have lacked on the left flank.

However, he hasn’t been perfect, struggling a lot in the defensive phase. Yesterday, he caused penalty with a silly foul and also scored an own-goal, although he couldn’t do much about the latter.

In an interview with Sky Italia this evening (via, the former AC Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta shared his thoughts on the 22-year-old. As mentioned, the defence seems to be the final piece for Hernandez.

“If he improves in the defensive phase as well, then he will become extraordinary. On things like the penalty, just a little is enough. There is room for improvement, he just has to work on it,” Costacurta stated.
