ML: Theo Hernandez’s trend of costly errors continues vs. Sampdoria – a change is needed

By Oliver Fisher -

Theo Hernandez is undoubtedly one of AC Milan’s best players and biggest weapons, but he continues to have costly lapses in concentration.

As MilanLive writes, the Frenchman had yet another costly error during the 1-1 draw against Sampdoria yesterday, giving the ball away cheaply inside Milan’s third allowing Fabio Quagliarella to lob the ball over a stranded Gianluigi Donnarumma and give Samp a 1-0 lead.

It seems that some of Theo’s mistakes cost the team dearly or could have ended up doing so, especially the ones in 2021. The former Real Madrid man slipped twice against Federico Chiesa in Juve’s 3-1 victory at San Siro as he lost the Juventus winger on the first goal after Dybala’s brilliant assist and hesitated a lot on the second goal allowing Chiesa to slot in.

Theo also made a mistake by giving the ball away when Milan were 2-0 up against Bologna as he tried to start one of his typical marauding runs, but lost the ball and the home side countered and scored to make it 2-1 and ensure the Rossoneri had a nervy finale.

Against Roma, another cumbersome loss of the ball saw Mkhytarian intercept and then the challenge on the Giallorossi playmaker saw appeals for a penalty. Finally, before the one against Sampdoria, his bad back pass against Udinese should have cost a goal but for Romagnoli’s clearance on the line from Nestorovski’s header.

Nonetheless, Theo has still won Milan more points than he has cost them with 5 goals so far this season, one of which was the last minute winner against Lazio, then also the brace in the 2-2 against Parma, plus 6 assists.

  1. Theo Hernandez has a very poor concentration, he is frivolous, makes a lot of mistakes, is very selfish with the ball and often tries to solve individual actions which is bad for the team if the defender makes tactics for attack. I think Theo Hernandez and Kesie should start a few games FROM THE BENCH, I say that because they are both as uninterested in the game and my judgment does not give her maximum energy in the match. I have been following AC Milan for 40 years and there have been oscillations before but this is now amateurish and transparent for all teams, Milan does not have the psychological strength and physical strength to currently surpass any team in Italy. It’s all Pioli’s fault, of course, he’s a bad coach

  2. Theo should know in modern football that type of wing back is not needed, he try to be gareth bale and starting to think he is untouchable, thats why he play as he like. And france national team is made a right choice not to include him, as long as he play like that he never been complete wingback. Not better from hakimi in attack and defense phase
