In an interview with Daily Mail, Bayern Munich winger expressed his feelings about Pep Guardiola’s coaching.
Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman admitted that Pep Guardiola put a major impact on his playing career.
Evidently, Coman played in top-tier clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, and current club Bayern. Surprisingly so, he is only 24 year-old and still in the early stages of his career.
Consequently, Coman managed to win league trophies in three different countries. In the recent outing, PSG lost to the Bavarians in the Champions League final.
An unforgettable mentor.
Moreover, Coman will have the best time of his career waiting to turn up. Although, the France international believes that Guardiola guided him to success in the season 2015-16.
“What he asked me to do was to see football differently from my position,” Coman told the Daily Mail. “He asked me to play wide, really go one against one, to make the difference like that.
“For me, the perfect game is to do a lot of skills, to help the team and to defend, and create a lot of opportunities.
“What I love is the way [Guardiola] played was to create space to be one against one. To have a coach when you are that young who has confidence in you and just wants you to go and play is amazing. When I play, I try to do beautiful stuff.”
Subsequently, Bayern racked victory in every single game in the Champions League last season. The team celebrated the final win in Lisbon in style. However, Bayern’s 8-2 incredible win against Barcelona in the quarter-finals will stay down memory lane.
Nonetheless, Coman will not forget the fabulous display of footballing skills by his teammates.
“I spoke to Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann and Clement Lenglet, the French guys in Barcelona’s team,” Coman said. “They told us we had played perfect football. We were so motivated, really confident. What we did, nobody can ever take away from us.”
Furthermore, Bayern will host Atletico Madrid in their tournament opener on Wednesday.
