Released but, delivered, we do not know yet.
Lucas Hernandez, the French international from Bayern Munich is summoned on October 19 by the Spanish justice which threatens to send him to prison.
A one-year prison sentence was required against him in 2018 for non-compliance with a removal order, one year after the conviction of the Frenchman and his companion Amelia for a marital brawl.
Indeed, in February 2017, the footballer, then player of Atlético de Madrid (2014-2019), and his companion (both parents of a little Martin, born on August 1, 2018) were each sentenced to 31 days community service and six months of mutual separation for "domestic violence", after a night brawl where they had exchanged blows and scratches in the middle of the street.
However, despite the removal order, the couple went on their honeymoon four months later and was arrested at Madrid airport on their return from Miami.
In Madrid on October 19 to choose a penitentiary center
Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer has announced that he is allowing Lucas Hernandez to appear in Spanish courts. According to Sky Germany, the club did not want to communicate publicly. Herbert Hainer finally spoke on the subject on the sidelines of the inauguration of the club's new restaurant. “First of all, it's Lucas Hernández's private business,” he explains. Lucas will be going there next week and then we'll negotiate and see. When asked if his club supported Hernández, Hainer replied: 'Yes, of course. "
Lucas Hernandez might only stay in prison for a few days, or not go at all, depending on how long it takes for his appeal to be considered.
But in any case, he must be present personally in Madrid on October 19 in order to choose a penitentiary center.
As the matter has already been settled, no postponement can be requested.
In Spain, prison sentences of less than two years are generally not applied unless it is a recidivism in which case incarceration is required even if the sentence is very short.
However, in this case, Hernandez had not performed the 31 days of community service and is considered a repeat offender.
