Seen as one of the best young talents of his generation, Coman is an electrifying player with pace, control, and good dribbling skills. He has time and again proved at the Allianz Arena that he has that something special.

An ankle injury saw his miss out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a tournament that France won. Coman has made 35 appearances this season, a tally he has achieved only once in his debut season for Bayern.
