Theo Hernandez had a busy evening against Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah and the Italian papers believes the Milan full-back ‘lost the battle from the first minute’, as Jordan Henderson was voted MVP at Anfield.
Salah missed a penalty and scored the 2-2 goal three minutes into the second half, as Milan bounced back but then lost the game 3-2 at Anfield.
Apart from the last 10 minutes of the first half, it was all Liverpool on Merseyside and the France international was struggling to stop Salah from making an impact.
La Gazzetta dello Sport believes Theo lost the battle ‘in his head before entering the pitch’, while Il Corriere dello Sport claims he was inferior when battling with both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Salah.
Tuttosport claims his start was ‘embarrassing’ and claimed he was a ‘Swiss cheese for the whole first half’.
Jordan Henderson scored the winner in the second half and played a vital part in the Reds’ midfield trident. The England international was voted the MVP of the match by the three major sports papers in Italy.
