French left-back Lucas Hernandez has appealed the six-month prison sentence handed down to him after he broke a restraining order due to a domestic violence conviction against his wife in 2017.
The 25-year-old must attend court in the Spanish capital of Madrid on Tuesday. From that point onwards, he will have until October 29 to voluntarily enter prison.
The Bayern Munich player had previously been denied an appeal by a criminal court in Madrid against a suspended sentence for breaking the agreement within the restraining order, according to a court document released yesterday.
Hernandez, who assaulted his girlfriend, Amelia Ossa Llorente, in February 2017, was sentenced to 31 days of community service for the crime.
In addition, he was given a restraining order which prevented him from being within 500 metres of his Ms. Llorente.
The former Atletico Madrid man was arrested in June 2017 after he did not adhere to the restraining order.
The accomplished defender has won the World Cup and UEFA Nations League with his country and joined German giants Bayern Munich in the summer of 2019 for €80 million.
