Cape Town, South Africa, 9 May 2024 — Global sports company PUMA today unveiled AC Milan and French star Theo Hernández as the latest member of the PUMA Fam. The dynamic left-back will become one of the lead PUMA ULTRA stars, joining Kingsley Coman, Antoine Griezmann, Cody Gakpo, Kyle Walker, and Memphis Depay.

At just 26, Theo comes with a wealth of European football experience having played for Real Madrid before joining Italian giants and PUMA club, AC Milan, in July 2019. Hernández boasts over 238 first-team appearances as well as representing his national side, France, 25 times, scoring 2 goals.

Hernández is a risk-taking, electric player with raw ability. He is lightning fast and will be lacing up the ULTRA because fast recognizes fast.

Hernández, a stylish icon off the pitch, said of his decision to join PUMA: “I’m excited to be joining the PUMA Fam. Both on and off the pitch, the brand fits my game and personality perfectly. I’m looking forward to working together both in football and fashion and to push myself to achieve more success for both club and country.”

He added: “PUMA is such an iconic brand with heroes such as Pelé, Maradona and Johan Cruyff and is really pushing performance innovation. Off the pitch, PUMA does things differently and really pushes style. So, I’m looking forward to an exciting future together.”

Johan Adamsson, Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sports Licensing at PUMA said: “Theo is one of the best full backs in world football and is a player we have admired for a long time. He is a key part of the French national team and AC Milan. Having an incredible talent like Theo is exciting for us as a brand and we look forward to seeing Theo enter the next chapter of his career with us alongside him.”
