Report: Theo Hernandez not back until after international break

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could be without full-back Theo Hernandez until after the first international break, according to a report.

Hernandez was the Rossoneri’s first signing of the summer as he arrived from Real Madrid for a fee believed to be in the region of €20million.

However, during the game against Bayern Munich, the Frenchman sustained an ankle injury which has ruled him out up until now.

He was forced to leave the pitch on a stretcher suggesting the injury was serious, however positive reports then arrived stating he would not be out for a prolonged period.

There was even speculation that he may be ready for the first game of the season away at Udinese, but Thursday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it) suggests otherwise.

They claim that Hernandez is continuing his recovery after the ankle problem suffered and is working towards regaining full fitness.

Despite this, the feeling is that he will not be back at Marco Giampaolo’s disposal until after the first international break.

If correct, that would mean missing the first two games of the Serie A season, against Udinese and Brescia respectively.
