Lucas Hernandez ‘excited’ by Atleti

Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez has admitted he is ‘very excited’ about next season after renewing his contract at the club.

The 22-year-old – whose brother Theo joined Real Madrid last summer – has recently extended his deal at the club by a further two years until 2024.

“This club has grown a lot since when I arrived,” Lucas told an interview with Marca.

“It is a very exciting time for the club and the effort being put in for next season is really important – all the players feel this way.

“This club have given me everything and I am delighted to renew as this is what I have always wanted, from the youth teams to now my ambitions are the same.

“Playing for this club is an honour and I hope I can show that with my displays on the pitch.”
