Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman has labeled the Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe as a difference-maker ahead of the Champions League final.
Kingsley Coman has urged his Bayern teammates to keep close tabs on PSG’s Kylian Mbappe when the two sides collide in the Champions League final on Sunday.
Perennial Bundesliga champions coasted to the final, having won all nine of their European fixtures this season, including a 3-0 dismantling of Lyon in the semi-finals.
An overwhelming 8-2 demolition of Barcelona in their quarter-final showdown highlights how talismanic the ‘Bavarians’ have been in Europe’s most prestigious club competition this term.
However, high-flying Hansi Flick’s side will face a formidable challenge of a PSG team in the ultimate battle, and Coman knows who could pray the prize away from Bayern’s clutches.
“I have played with him [Mbappe] several times, so I will try to give any advice I can give,” he said, as transmitted by Goal.
“There is also video and the instructions from the coaches. He is a player who creates, a little bit like Lionel Messi, whom we already faced.
“He can make the difference in a match, and we will try to keep him as quiet as possible.”
Mbappe, who returned to the fold on the eve of PSG’s quarter-final clash against Atalanta, will lead the line for Thomas Tuchel’s side at the Estadio da Luz.
Along with his partner in crime Neymar, the 21-year-old holds the keys to what would be a historic success for the Ligue 1 heavyweights.
