Hakan Calhanoglu of Inter Milan refused to shake hands with Theo Hernandez of AC Milan before Saturday’s Derby Della Madonnina at San Siro as seen in a viral video.
Given the chant that Theo initiated during the Scudetto celebrations last season, there is no love lost between the two players.
A video of a customary handshake between the two teams before Saturday’s game at San Siro shows that Calhanoglu had no plans to shake hands with his former teammate, Theo Hernandez.
On Saturday night, September 4, 2022, at San Siro, two of the biggest clubs in Italian football faced off, serving up a feast of football.
The eventual winners were the current Serie A champions AC Milan; the Rossoneri defeated Inter Milan with a 3-2 comeback victory.
The first-half goal from Marcelo Brozovic gave Stefano Pioli’s team a 1-0 deficit, but they responded to the setback admirably.
Rafael Leao scored twice, and Olivier Giroud also scored, as AC Milan quickly built a 3-1 advantage that was ultimately sufficient to secure three priceless points.
Things became extremely uncomfortable for the hosts in the dying moments after Edin Dzeko’s goal immediately after coming off the bench, but they were able to hang on for the victory.
All fans of the beautiful game, especially those supporting AC Milan, had a wonderful day because they got to enjoy a genuine classic.
But before a single ball was kicked, drama which often characterize the Milan derby had already started thanks to Calhanoglu and Hernandez.
Hakan Calhanoglu declined to shake hands with Theo Hernandez, a former colleague, as the two teams got ready to face off at San Siro.
Although they had previously played together at AC Milan, Calhanoglu was evidently not in the mood for formalities before starting the game because Hernandez led some AC Milan fans to sing anti-Calhanoglu chant while Milan was celebrating their Seria A triumph last season.

Inter Milan, 2020-2021 Serie A champions, defeated Juventus 1-0 in last season’s final Derby thanks to a first-half penalty, putting inter back in contention for the championship.
Giorgio Chiellini, a seasoned defender, missed the most obvious of Juve’s missed opportunities during the opening period, and their negligence paid them when Inter was awarded a penalty in first-half stoppage time after a VAR review.
In first-half injury time, Hakan Calhanoglu scored his sole goal from the penalty spot.
