Pioli: 'Theo can become the best full-back in the world'

Stefano Pioli has claimed Theo Hernandez ‘can become one of the best full-backs in the world’ ahead of Milan’s match against Juventus on Tuesday.

During a press conference ahead of tomorrow's meeting with the Old Lady, Pioli highlighted the impact made by Hernandez during his first season at San Siro.

Theo has contributed five goals and four assists in his 26 games so far for the Diavolo and Pioli expects there's more to come from the French defender.

“Theo is evidently more inclined to the attacking aspect of the game,” Pioli told the reporters. “He’s currently working with continuity and attention to the defensive phase.

“It means that he understood he can become one of the best full-backs in the world if he works on that department.

“He will have to very careful tomorrow night.”

Milan enter the match against Juventus on a high, still unbeaten since the resumption, winning three of their last four League games.

The Rossoneri resumed with a goalless draw against the Bianconeri on June 12 and have since beaten both Roma and Lazio in Serie A.
