Theo Hernández’s pre-season is over due to the blow he suffered against Bayern Munich, as the club confirmed he has a capsule-ligament injury.
The new summer signing was Milan’s best player in the friendly against Bayern Munich but had to leave the pitch before the end of the first half due to an injury.
The player returned to Italy to undergo medical tests and on Saturday the club released an update regarding his situation:
“Today, Milan defender Theo Hernández underwent a scan to his right ankle following the injury suffered during the match against FC Bayern in the ICC tournament. The examinations have revealed a capsule-ligament injury. The player will undergo more tests in two weeks’ time,” a statement reads.
Sky reports that it will take Theo over 3-4 weeks to recover as his injury is more serious than initially thought. The Serie A season starts on August 24 so the player is unlikely to be fit in time.
