Lucas Hernández is the son of former Atletico Madrid centre-back Jean-François Hernández. He was born in Marseille and joined Atletico Madrid’s youth system at the age of 11. On 9 November 2013, while still a junior, he was called up by manager Diego Simeone for a La Liga match against Villarreal CF, but remained unused in the 1–1 away draw on the following day. He made his first team debut over a year later, on 3 December 2014, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–0 away success over CE L’Hospitalet, for the season’s Copa del Rey. During the 15/16 pre-season, he was permanently added to the first squad and will most likely provide relief to Filipe Luis and central defenders. He played very well at the 2015 European Under-19 Championship, but his team got knocked out by eventual champions Spain in the semi-final.
