"Kingsley learned his trade in Paris, maybe it'll be extra motivation," Hansi Flick said, commenting on Kingsley Coman ahead of the Champions League final. Coman was a starter against Paris Saint-Germain, and the FCB coach's decision was vindicated when the Paris-born winger scored the match-winner after 58 minutes, his goal sealing the second treble in club history.

"Just 100 percent FC Bayern"

Kingsley Coman: just 100 percent FC Bayern.

"Of course I'm very, very, very happy, I must stress that. An incredible evening, not only for the club, but also for all fans," Coman said after the final whistle: "Of course I wanted to turn in a good display but that's nothing against PSG. I'm just 100 percent FC Bayern, I must be professional."

Flying Kingsley: Coman left Keylor Navas with no chance.

Coman out the blocks in a flash

From the very first minute, the 24-year-old demonstrated exactly the kind of "extra motivation" Flick had mentioned before the game. Coman turned on the burners for the first time after just 13 minutes, but was just about stopped on the edge of the penalty area. The wideman was unstoppable in the 59th minute however, when he headed a Joshua Kimmich cross past Keylor Navas in the PSG goal to give FC Bayern the lead - a story of the kind that football could write.


King of Europe: Kingsley Coman's celebrations shows what it meant for him and FCB.

Just four minutes later, the Frenchman even had a great chance to double his team's lead and his own personal tally to seal the title in the Champions League final; but Thiago Silva was able to clear the shot from an acute angle just in front of the goalline.

Record season for King Coman

The winner for FCB's sixth Champions League title, won against Coman's former club, was his third goal of the current season, the highest total he's ever scored.
