His journey in blue

Kingsley Coman knows the France team well. The former Parisian was called up for the first time by Didier Deschamps in November 2015 and he will know his first selection on the occasion of an infamous match, France – Germany on November 13, 2015. Since then, the former Parisian has experienced 40 selections. A nice number when he is only 26 years old. He has only scored five goals but he is invaluable in his provocative game and can confuse any defender thanks to his burst of speed.

In 2016, Kingsley Coman was selected by the French coach to compete in the Euro in France. He will finish vice-champion of Europe and will play several matches including more than an hour of play in the final against Portugal. Two years later, he misses the World Cup in Russia because of an injury and will not be able to participate in the French coronation. Despite everything, he will win his first trophy with the Blues in 2021 with the League of Nations.

His potential for the World Cup

His playing career

Coman made his debut at the US Senart-Moissy club before joining the Paris Saint-Germain training center. He was then 9 years old. Seven years later, he is the youngest player in the history of PSG to play a professional match in Ligue 1. Indeed, he replaces Marco Verratti in the 87th minute against FC Sochaux-Montbéliard. He played a total of 4 games under the colors of PSG, but did not score any goals. Despite everything, his abilities attract the attention of big foreign clubs.

It was with Juventus that Kingsley Coman decided to sign in 2014. His performances improved and he scored a goal in the Italian Cup against Hellas Verona. With Juve, he was crowned Italian champion in 2015 following the victory against Sampdoria in Genoa (0-1). During the 2014-2015 season, the striker played 20 games for 1 goal scored and 2 assists.

His 2015-2016 season at Juventus was short since the player was loaned by the Italian club to Bayern Munich for two seasons with an option to buy. He scored his first goal for Bayern on September 19, 2015, against SV Darmstadt. During the 2015-2016 season, Kingsley Coman scored a total of 6 goals and provided 11 assists. During the following season, the striker scored 2 league goals. Kingsley Coman then commits definitively with Bayern, to which he is now linked until 2027. The Bavarian leaders seem to like the player who he returns to them by scoring the decisive goal in the Champions League final against Paris, his training club, in 2020. At 26, he has already played 246 games in the colors of the German club and has scored 50 goals and provided 61 assists.

For the little story…

Born in Paris to parents from Guadeloupe and Guinea, Kingsley Coman inherited his first name in homage to African illegal immigrants who had tried to reach Europe by boat and who were almost thrown overboard by sailors. The father had heard of this story in Le Parisien and had been moved by this story and by that of one of the illegal immigrants who was named Kingsley.

The former Parisian is also the cousin of Miss France 2003, Corinne Coman who represented Guadeloupe at the time. He is very inspired by Thierry Henry who shares the same origins as him.

In June 2017, Kingsley Coman has setbacks with the law and is placed in police custody when his partner Sephora Goignan accuses him of domestic violence. The French international will plead guilty in court and will be fined 5,000 euros. He will also have to pay a symbolic euro in damages to his ex-companion to cover the legal costs.
