Lucas Hernandez: Bayern Munich and France defender appeals six-month prison sentence for violating restraining order |  Football news

France and Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez has appealed a six-month prison sentence for violating a restraining order following a 2017 conviction for domestic violence against his wife.

Hernandez, 25, is due to appear in court in Madrid on October 19, from which he has 10 days to enter prison voluntarily.

A court document released on Wednesday said Hernandez was denied an appeal by a Madrid criminal court against a previous suspended prison sentence for defying the no-contact order.

Hernandez was sentenced to 31 days of community service for assaulting his girlfriend, Amelia Ossa Llorente, in February 2017.

He also received an injunction preventing him from being within 500 meters of his partner, who was also sentenced to 31 days of community service for violence, assault and property damage.

Hernandez, who was then an Atletico Madrid player, was arrested in June 2017 for defying the ban after landing in Madrid with his wife after their wedding and honeymoon.

He made his professional debut for Atletico in 2014 before joining Bayern in 2019 for € 80million.

Hernandez, World Cup winner in 2018, was part of the France squad that won the UEFA Nations League on Sunday.
