Simeone: Hernandez Got a Bright Future
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone believes Lucas Hernandez will have a bright future with Los Rojiblancos.
The French center-back has defended Atletico since he was seven years old, and after debuting in the first team in 2015, he won a place in Simeone’s team.
The coach himself believes, if the player will be able to grow into one of the best players in the world.
“He is an extraordinary player, with a bright future,” the coach told reporters. “He made me trouble, in making decisions. I have Filipe Luis in the left back position, and Diego Godin in the center-back position, both of which are outstanding players. ”
“Lucas is not a player who likes to knock on my office door, but he’s trying to open the door. He asked me to find a solution, and give him space to play. ”
“For me, the best position is in the middle. He can be a great player, in the formation of three defenders. He’s good at ball control, fast, and nimble in one-on-one situations. ”
“He is destined to be one of the best central defenders in Europe.”
