Kingsley Coman has extended his contract with FC Bayern, which was originally due to run until 30 June 2023, until 2027. The France international, 25, signed permanently for the German record champions in 2017 following two years on loan from Juventus. He wrote history with Bayern when he scored the winning goal in the 2020 Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain.
CEO Oliver Kahn: “Players with Kingsley Coman’s ability are wanted by clubs all around the world. This contract extension is another example of how attractive our club is at the highest level internationally. Kingsley is fully committed to FC Bayern, he’s found his footballing home here. World-class players consider very carefully where they sign their contracts these days. We’re pleased that Kingsley has extended with us long-term: when he’s on the ball, the fans get excited. People come to the stadium to see such players.”
Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic: "We‘re very happy Kingsley Coman has committed to FC Bayern with a long-term contract. Kingsley came to FC Bayern in 2015 as one of Europe's greatest attacking talents. He has developed into a world-class player with us over the past six and a half years. He already made history with his goal in the 2020 Champions League final and now has a great chance to leave his mark on an era. King, with his quality as a provider and his goalscoring threat, is of utmost importance for the future of our team. Our aim is for FC Bayern to continue to compete at the top of Europe in the coming years. With the contract extensions of Kingsley, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, we have laid a strong foundation for this."
Kingsley Coman: "I’m very happy because FC Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and I know we still have a lot of opportunities and big goals here. I've been at the club since 2015 – it feels like a big family. Everything is perfect here. My best years as a footballer are still ahead of me, and I'm glad I'll be spending them at FC Bayern. My biggest goal is to win the Champions League again – and this time, please, together with our fans."
Coman has been a German champion six times, DFB Cup winner three times and DFL Supercup winner five times since joining Bayern. He has also won the Champions League, the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup. With his decisive goal in the 2020 Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain, he played a major role in the club's historic six-title year.
