“I come from Marseille, it will be a little complicated to go to Paris but anything can happen in this life. » On this Classic Sunday, Téléfoot dug up this response from Lucas Hernandez, in 2018 during a press conference with the French team, four months before the Blues’ coronation at the World Cup in Russia. His place of birth and his words, Parisian supporters had not forgotten them when they discovered the signing of the 27-year-old defender at Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
The Ultra Paris Collective did not fail to reserve a special welcoming committee for him, when Lorient came to the Parc des Princes (0-0). The group of supporters had prepared a banner for the former Bavarian: “We all make mistakes, being born in Marseille is one of them. »
Asked by Téléfoot about his arrival in the capital despite his Marseille roots, Hernandez was understanding. “Compared to my comments previously, it was certain that they were going to react badly. It’s normal. I understand them perfectly,” he assured. Above all, he affirmed his determination to invite himself into the hearts of Parisians.
“They are changing their minds”
“I am someone who will always give everything on the pitch,” promised the defender, convincing on the field since his arrival. Paris Saint-Germain supporters see that all their players give their all on the pitch. They will change their minds. Little by little, they are changing their minds. » To wrap it all up, Hernandez announced that his adventure at the Parc des Princes was set to last: “It’s only the beginning, I’ve just arrived. My goals are very big, I am very happy to be here and for many years. »
