Hernandez will appear before the 32nd criminal court in Madrid on October 19th. That confirmed Bayern President Herbert Hainer on Thursday. “He’s going there now, then it’ll be negotiated, then we’ll see,” he said on the sidelines of the official opening of the 1900 clubhouse on the Munich campus.
On Wednesday it became known that Hernandez had been summoned by the court. In December 2019, he was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment for violating a ban on approaching and contacting his girlfriend at the time and now his wife.
FC Bayern initially did not comment, Hainer’s request to speak was the first statement on the case. However, the President did not want to go into any further detail. “These are Lucas Hernandez’s private things, I don’t want to evaluate them,” continued Hainer. It is therefore also still unclear whether Hernandez will be used in the Champions League game at Benfica Lisbon next Wednesday (9 p.m., LIVE! At kicker) – one day after the negotiation in Madrid.
