Kingsley Coman, the French professional footballer currently playing for Bayern Munich, who has also trained at Paris Saint-Germain’s academy as a teen, has spoken out about Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) failure to win the Champions League compared to his current team.
In an interview with RMC Sport, Coman said, “It’s difficult to say, there are small details. The difference is undoubtedly linked to the fact that Bayern has been a big club for many years and that Europe is inscribed in its DNA.”
Bayern Munich is a well-established club in European competitions as it has won six Champions League titles, and Coman believes that the club’s long-standing history has contributed to their success in the tournament.
Coman, who began his football career at PSG, also spoke about the Parisian club’s potential to win the Champions League in the future.
He said, “Paris is on the way, they’ve been among the European top for a few years, they still go far in the Champions League and are a title contender. Sometimes you just have to let time do its work, and things will work out for Paris.”
PSG has reached the final of the Champions League once, in the 2019-20 season, where they lost to Bayern Munich. Kingsley Coman’s only goal in the UCL final stopped PSG from winning their first ever UCL title.
PSG have signed Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr. and 2022 World Cup winner Lionel Messi, as well as keeping Kylian Mbappe despite Real Madrid’s persistence, and yet have gone out of UCL round of 16 in succession.
