|Back to Stade Français?|
El Mago simply has a massive choice to make and it is not an easy one. On the one hand he could set the mark and lead the way for future Pumas players by playing in the Southern Hemispher´s Premier competition. On the other hand he could continue to play in Paris where he is one of the most respected and highest paid players. The man known to his Argentine teammates as Juani explained it all in an interview with Argentine site scrum. He explained that he is analyzing the offer from the Blues as well as both offers from Stade Français and Racing Métro. Curiously, the offer from Racing Métro is poles apart to the treatment Horacio Agulla received from the Leicester Tigers. According to Hernández, Racing Métro are willing to sign him despite his certain involvement in The Rugby Championship which will mean he will miss the preseason training as well as matches in August and September as the competition is set to finish one week into October.
The option of a new challenge in Auckland or remaining in Paris is a tough oen as Hernández makes it clear that his home is in Europe and, moreover, Paris. Of the three options on the table Hernández said he would prioritize Paris because he has lived in the city for virtually all his career as a profesional rugby player and in his words, I feel comfortable and instaled. His only time as a professional away from Paris was playing for the Sharks in South Africa in 2009. Despite making it clear that his preference is to remain in the Top 14 Orange, Hernández also said the offer from the Blues is good and on top of having a great level of rugby, it also supports the calendar of Los Pumas. However, he finished by saying that the truth is that, when choosing, which also comes into play is my personal life - private.
