France and Bayern Munich defender, Lucas Hernandez is set to face a six months jail term in Spain.
Reports claim Lucas Hernandez, must appear before a Madrid court next week and faces six months in prison.
The Bayern Munich star is to tell the court on Tuesday where he will serve the sentence that was handed down on Wednesday for violating a restraining order in 2017 while playing at Atletico Madrid.
According to reports the restraining orders were originally imposed on him and his girlfriend after a violent argument in 2017.
They were then caught returning to Spain together after getting married before the six months were up.
In Hernandez’s case, this was deemed a violation of the restraining order. However his now-wife reportedly got away with it because the original ruling had not yet been sent to her.
Hernandez has protested his innocence in the case, while Bayern Munich have not commented.
In Spain, restraining orders remain in place even in case of reconciliation because this prevents any kind of forced reconciliation.
It is however reportedly unclear how soon a new court would deal with the case and whether the appeal would spare him from going to jail.
