Lucas Hernandez faces the duel with his former club Atletico Madrid. At the press conference, the Frenchman spoke in Spanish about the difficult first year in Munich, his - felt - personal new start this season, the competition with Alphonso Davies - and Diego Simeone.
His move to Munich was widely discussed. At first it was about whether the 80 million euros transferred to Madrid were justified for a defender; Over the course of the season, after Lucas Hernandez then had to struggle with several injuries and operations, the question arose whether the 2018 world champion was really a reinforcement for Bayern or whether it was an expensive misunderstanding.

He does not regret the move, the ex-Madrilene explains: "There are decisions that you make in life. I am not sad or disappointed. The club puts great emphasis on me - I would like to confirm this trust. "

Whether left or half-left in the defensive row. "I don't care," said Hernandez: "I feel good in both positions." Even though coach Hansi Flick has the feeling that "Lucas sees himself more as a central defender," as the coach says: "But he's doing his role as a left-back very well. He's showing where he has his strengths from the start of this season."

For a "young player, especially after such an outstanding season", it is "maybe normal", says the head coach: "He has to deal with that. It is important that he gets back on track."
"He's a great coach and for me the best coach in the world." - Hernandez on Simeone
Therefore everything indicates that on Wednesday evening, when FC Bayern starts the new Champions League season against Atletico, Hernandez will be in the starting line-up again.
The defender is looking forward to the duel and to seeing his old colleagues again. After all, the change was only a year ago. "I still have good connections with Atletico," he says. "This club gave me everything." In particular, Diego Simeone, the coach. "He's a great coach and for me the best coach in the world. I'm forever grateful." Which of course makes the game on Wednesday evening a special one for Hernandez. But in these 90 minutes it is also clear: "Everything that counts on the pitch is FC Bayern."
