According to the Spanish media AS and cited by Get French footballHernández, who recently appeared in France’s 3-2 victory over Belgium in the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League, has been summoned by the 32nd Criminal Court of Madrid to begin his stay in prison.
“Mr. Lucas François Bernard Hernández is summoned to appear before this Court on October 19, 2021, at 11:00 am, to be personally required to voluntarily enter jail within ten days, in the prison of his choice ”.
Both Hernández and his wife Amelia de la Osa Lorente received restraining orders for 6 months and a month of community service after the couple had a public altercation in 2010 when the Bayern defender was with Atléti.
