MN: Theo Hernandez channels Weah – Maldini smiles as his value has tripled

By Oliver Fisher -

Theo Hernandez was one of the protagonists of a crucial win for AC Milan yet again, showing all of his speed and power to score the second game.

MilanNews recall how his 80-yard run from box to box was reminiscent of the one that George Weah scored against Hellas Verona on 8 September 1996. Theo is showing himself to be a modern full-back as his 20 goals for Milan in 121 appearances shows.

Paolo Maldini, Stefano Pioli and the entire club are thrilled with the continued development of a defender with a value that has now tripled compared to the €20m that was paid back in the summer of 2019 when he arrived from Real Madrid.

His extraordinary goal sealed the win against Atalanta and San Siro exploded, while it must also be noted that he and Rafael Leao together have formed a devastating left flank that have contributed to a lot of victories this season.
