Milan

coach,

Stefano Pioli

hails his defender, 

Theo Hernández

and believes he deserves a spot in

France

squad.

Since he moved from

Real Madrid

to

Milan

in 2019, the French defender have performed in 46 matches for Milan, scoring 8 goals and contributing 7 assists.

Milan boss,

Stefano Pioli

is pleased with his performance and believes that he is improving everyday:

“He is one of the best full-backs in Europe,”

Pioli said

“He has great physical and technical qualities.

“He can read the last pass well and has the potential to hurt his opponents on his own. He’s trying to improve every day and he’s doing it especially in the defensive phase.

“He’s a great full-back, I’m satisfied with what he’s doing but he can still improve.”

Hernandez have never played for France and Pioli believes he deserves a shot:

“I’m surprised, but I don’t want to interfere in the decisions made by Deschamps,”

“France have a lot of talents, but Theo deserves to be called up.

“He’s working to enter the national team.”
