Hernandez mum ‘living a dream’

The mother of Theo (pictured) and Lucas Hernandez has admitted it is like she is ‘living a dream’ as the two go head-to-head in the Madrid derby.

Theo switched from Los Rojiblancos to the Bernabeu in the summer while his elder brother, who is also a defender, remained with Diego Simeone’s side.

“I hope it goes well for them and they don’t hurt each other,” Py Laurence told an interview with Marca.

“They have never played each other before and for me this is a very proud moment, it’s as if I am living in a dream.

“I cannot chose between them, for me there is no difference between them – they are equal and my heart is split, they are my children first and foremost.

“They get on very well and obviously, love each other a lot. There is only 15 months in an age difference so they are extremely close, they always have been.

“They critique and analyse each other’s performances and offer feedback and support when they need to.

“None of us can stand the rivalry between the teams.”
