EdF: Clear DD on the position of L. Hernandez

After Presnel Kimpembe’s package, the versatile defender of the France team Lucas Hernandez (26 years old, 32 caps) is the only left-hander capable of playing in central defense in the tricolor group during the 2022 World Cup. his side, the coach of the Blues Didier Deschamps considers the Bavarian especially as a left side, in competition with his brother Théo Hernandez.

“Lucas can also play left axis? No (he cuts, editor’s note), but he is a left side above all. I told you, I don’t change. I could have at the limit (change, editor’s note) because I I am free to do what I want, of course he can play in central defense. But I consider him as a left-back. So by deduction…”, said the former coach of Olympique de Marseille, before clearly expressing his options as left central defender.

“The two who are supposed to be able (to play in this position, editor’s note), even if they can all do it in absolute terms… The two who are more used to playing right-handed are Ibrahima Konaté and Dayot Upamecano,” Deschamps replied. The two young talents therefore have a good card to play to probably support Raphaël Varane.
