GdS: Theo Hernandez returns for Milan – a chance to put a difficult start to 2021 behind him

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will welcome back Theo Hernandez tonight against Napoli, a player absolutely fundamental for Stefano Pioli’s game system.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport reports (via MilanNews), the Frenchman will start from the first minute against Napoli, after missing the last two matches due to various problems. Milan welcome back one of the pillars of their team and while Theo may not have the turbo of the first season of the Rossoneri, he is still decisive when he gets up a head of steam.

In 2021 he has not yet scored and has not always managed to be at his best, but tonight is the right opportunity to put the arrow back and continue the excellent displays which have made him one of the best left-backs in Europa over the past 18 months.

He will join Ante Rebic and Hakan Calhanoglu to form part of the trio that will return from injury to face old friend Gennaro Gattuso.
