In an interview with “Téléfoot” (as captured by Abendzeitung), Bayern Munich’s Champions League finale hero Kingsley Coman admitted that he had thought about leaving the club last summer.

That timeline should not be surprising, though. After more than a year of courting Leroy Sane from Manchester City, the Bavarians were able procure the Germany international in a move that most anticipated would relegate Coman to a reserve role.

That notion, however, died quickly as Coman has proven to be the most dangerous, consistent, and frankly best of Hansi Flick’s five options at wing (Coman, Sane, Serge Gnabry, Douglas Costa, and Jamal Musiala).
