Theo Hernandez is desperate to play in AC Milan’s season opener at Udinese, but no risks will be taken surrounding his fitness.
Hernandez sustained a second-degree ligament distortion to his right ankle (ankle sprain), during the International Champions Cup game against Bayern Munich.
The Frenchman, who recently arrived from Real Madrid, will apparently miss around three weeks in total as a result of the injury – meaning it is touch and go whether he will be available for the trip to Udine.
Now, Sportmediaset have offered an update on Hernandez’s health, stating he has ‘great desire to return to the field’ and is aiming to be back for the first game of the season.
However, the Milan medical staff do not want to take any risks, and for this reason he could return to Marco Giampaolo’s disposal for the second Serie A match against Brescia.
