Future Bayern defender Lucas Hernández had a successful operation on his right knee on Wednesday. "The operation went very, very well, just as our doctors had imagined", head coach Niko Kovac reported on Thursday. In accordance with his current club Atlético Madrid, the French world champion will "do the rehab here in Munich - under the supervision of our doctors and physios", Kovac continued.
The German record champions' coach was "happy" about securing the 23-year-old's services. "We're looking forward to having him here and are very happy to have signed him. He's a player who can fill many different positions, who has a very, very good mentality and who will definitely strengthen us. But, clarified Kovac, not until 1 July." Following the necessary surgery on the injured knee, Kovac expects Hernández, who can play both as a central defender and on the left to be ready on matchday one of the coming season - "all being well."
