Lucas Hernández will appear before Criminal Court number 32 in Madrid next Tuesday, This was confirmed on Thursday by the president of Bayern Munich, Herbert Hainer. “Now it will go there, then it will be negotiated and then we will see”, fwere the words of the head honcho about it. When asked about the sporting consequences for the German champion, Hainer settled the issue: “It is a most personal matter,” he stressed.
Last Wednesday it came to light that said court had ordered the execution of a prison sentence against Lucas. The 25-year-old player had been convicted of violating a restraining order against his now wife Amelia. It should be remembered that Lucas must appear at 11 am next Tuesday in the Spanish capital “In order to be personally required to voluntarily enter the penitentiary of his choice within ten days.” That same day, his club will travel to Lisbon for the Champions League match against Benfica.
The case may have consequences for a Bayern that, in the worst case, would have to do without the defender in up to 34 games in the remainder of the season. This Sunday, the Munich leaders of the Bundesliga will face off in the match of the day with Bayer Leverkusen in second place. “All the players are available,” said Hainer in this regard. Everything points to Lucas also being at the BayArena.
