Kingsley Coman refuses to rule out move away from Bayern Munich as he hails Pep Guardiola as the ‘best manager a winger can have’

  • Kingsley Coman joined Bayern Munich under Pep Guardiola back in 2015
  • The French winger has had a successful five-year stint at the Allianz Arena
  • Coman says ‘anything is possible’ for his future and has praised Guardiola 

Kingsley Coman has hailed Pep Guardiola as his favourite coach while also refusing to rule out a move away from Bayern Munich in the future.

Coman joined Bayern Munich, initially on loan, when Guardiola was in charge at the Allianz Arena in 2015.

The winger made the deal permanent after the Spaniard left the club and despite enjoying his time in Germany, he has not ruled out a move away from the Bundesliga champions in the future.

 ‘I don’t know what I want in five years so anything is possible,’ he told Eurosport.

‘To stay at the top level and to win the most titles. Bayern is one of the clubs where you can do that.’

Coman, while still in his early days of his career, has already been part of title-winning sides at Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich, with 16 medals to his name.

He has worked with some of the finest managers in world football including Carlo Ancelotti, Jupp Heynckes and Massimiliano Allegri. 

However Coman says that current Manchester City manager Guardiola is the best he’s worked with.

He said: ‘I would say Guardiola because he is the one who made me start playing a little more regularly even if I had played a few matches at Juventus.

‘For a player in my position, a winger who likes to hit and provoke, he is the best coach we can have because that is what demands us the most.

‘He creates systems to have one-on-one situations and it’s the system where I can flourish the most. He didn’t ask me to have stats. He just asked me to take, hit and centre. And that was what I appreciated very much.’

The winger is in his fifth year at the German champions and to date he has scored 30 goals in 147 appearances.
