A first for Kingsley Coman! The winger has been on the books at FC Bayern since the summer of 2015 and has played over 170 competitive games since then. His winning goal in the 2020 Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain secured his place in the record champions' history books. Now the 24-year-old has been honoured for his strong performances in the current season by the highest authority: FC Bayern's fans. They voted Coman Player of the Month for the first time ever.
With five goals and eight assists in 13 competitive games, Coman has his best return of any season to date. In November alone, he scored three goals and provided two assists in games against Werder Bremen (1-1), VfB Stuttgart (3-1) and FC Salzburg (3-1). No wonder CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently stated in kicker: "Kingsley is a top player today, he's extremely valuable for FC Bayern. He often makes the difference, especially when it counts."
The fans of the record champion honoured Coman's strong performance and voted the French international as FCB's outstanding player in November, with 42% of the votes. Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer came in close second with 21% each.
Flick: "One of the best in his position"
"He scores goals, he radiates goal-scoring ability, who makes assists and has a good eye for space," coach Hansi Flick said, recently praising his number 29. "He implements the idea we have very well, and he currently has a lot of goal involvements. That's why I think he's one of the best in this position."
