Giornale: Milan vs. Inter, Theo vs. Hakimi – opposite flanks, opposite sides of the field, same impact

By Oliver Fisher -

Theo Hernandez and Achraf Hakimi: two players who play on opposite sides of the city and on opposite flanks but are part of a fascinating battle.

Today’s edition of Il Giornale looks at the importance of the two former Real Madrid full-backs, and mentions how attacking full-backs are familiar to the two clubs with Inter having had the likes of Giacinto Facchetti, Andreas Brehme and Maicon, while the Rossoneri had their own answer in Aldo Maldera – as well as of course Mauro Tassotti, Cafu and Serginho.

Hakimi, who is contracted to Inter until 2025, has made 19 appearances across all competitions so far this season, with four goals and five assists so far and he is beginning to justify his €40million price tag.

Theo Hernandez, who is contracted to the Rossoneri until 2024, has made 20 appearances this campaign with four goals and five assists, having become a virtually irreplaceable part of Stefano Pioli’s plans.
