Theo Bernard François Hernández (French pronunciation: ​[teo ɛʁnɑ̃dɛz, - ɛʁnandɛs]; born 6 October 1997) is a French professional footballer who plays as a left back for Spanish club Real Sociedad on loan from Real Madrid.

Club career[edit]

Atlético Madrid[edit]

Born in Marseille, Hernández joined Atlético Madrid's academy in 2007, aged 9.[3] After progressing through the youth categories, he was promoted to the reserves in Tercera División in summer 2015.

On 3 February 2016, Hernández renewed his contract.[4] Two days later, he was called up to the first team for a La Liga match against SD Eibar due to injuries,[5] but remained an unused substitute in the 3–1 home win.[6]

On 4 August 2016, Hernández extended his contract until 2021, being immediately loaned to fellow league club Deportivo Alavés for one year.[7][8] He made his professional debut late in the month, starting in a 0–0 home draw against Sporting de Gijón.[9]

On 16 October 2016, Hernández was given a straight red card in a 1–1 home draw to Málaga CF after a hard tackle on Ignacio Camacho.[10] He scored his first professional goal the following 7 May, netting the game's only in a home success over Athletic Bilbao.[11]

A regular starter during the Basque team's run in the Copa del Rey, Hernández helped them reach the final for the first time in their 91-year history. During the decisive match on 27 May 2017, he scored the equaliser through a direct free kick in a 1–3 loss against FC Barcelona.[12]

Real Madrid[edit]

On 5 July 2017, Hernández signed a six-year deal with Real Madrid.[13][14][15] He made his competitive debut on 16 August, replacing Marco Asensio in a 2–0 home win against Barcelona for that year's Supercopa de España.[16]

Hernández made three appearances during the 2017–18 edition of the UEFA Champions League,[17] helping the club win its third consecutive and 13th overall title in the competition.[18] On 10 August 2018, he was loaned to Real Sociedad.[19][20]

Personal life[edit]

Hernández's father, Jean-François, was also a footballer. A central defender of Spanish descent, he too played for Atlético Madrid;[21][22] his older brother, Lucas, also a defender, was also developed at the club.[23]
