World Cup 2022: Lucas Hernandez successfully operated on his right knee

A place for rehabilitation. Having seriously injured his knee against Australia, Lucas Hernandez underwent successful surgery in Innsbruck on the night of Thursday to Friday. The operation was performed by Dr. Christian Fink. This was announced by a press release from Bayern Munich, and “the Bayern defender will begin rehabilitation in the coming days in Munich.”

The period of inaccessibility for such an injury is usually at least six months. So Lucas’ season is probably over as Bayern will play their last Bundesliga game on May 27th and the Champions League final will take place on June 10th.

In the match against Australia, the left-back was himself injured while his Australian colleague hit a sharp ball in the opposite direction of the Frenchman’s run. Lucas was replaced by his brother Theo in the 13th minute after the Socceroos opened the scoring. The left piston of “Milan” brilliantly prevailed over its older one.

More offensively focused, the former Madrid player allowed Kylian Mbappé to take different places and sent a good cross to Adrien Rabiot to equalize, which opened Bleus (4-1). However, Lucas’ injury limits the rotation to the left-back position. In training, Eduardo Camavinga, one of the few left-handers on the team, was tested in this corridor.
