Real Madrid star impressed by Theo’s performance

AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez was the author of a great performance against Venezia scoring two crucial goals.

AC Milan return momentarily to the top of Serie A after the fine 3-0 win against Venezia. The Rossoneri secure their third victory in a row thanks to a brace from Theo Hernandez and one goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Unsurprisingly, the 24-year-old defender was the Man of the Match today. The French left-back was impeccable in defence and a force to be reckoned with in attack. A truly fantastic display that cements Theo’s role as one of the best players in the world in his position.

Today’s brace puts Hernandez’s tally at four goals and five assists in 17 Serie A appearances so far. Excellent numbers for a defender. Obviously the France international was happy with his performance celebrating today’s victory with a post on Instagram. “Let’s go! 2 goals, +3 points“, wrote the AC Milan captain in Romagnoli’s absence.

The performance of Theo Hernandez has caught the eye of his former Real Madrid teammate Marcelo. The Brazil international complimented his department colleague. “You are so good!“, said Marcelo. The Real Madrid defender is not the only one impressed by the performances of Theo Hernandez.

The Rossoneri are very happy with their defender and are in advanced negotiations to extend his contract until 2026 as admitted by Theo himself after the match. “We are at a very good point. I am happy here from day one. We’re talking about the renewal“.
