Hansi Flick reveals the importance of Kingsley Coman
Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick has stressed the weight of Kingsley Coman to his squad in the wake of their 3-3 draw against RB Leipzig on Saturday. The winger set all three goals for his side as they shared points with their Bundesliga rivals. Coman now has five assists to complement his two league goals and have shot three times and set two more in the Champions League. With Leroy Sane, Douglas Costa and Serge Gnabry also in the squad, Flick is spoiled for choice in wide positions, but he says Coman is an example for the rest. “We have four wingers of outstanding quality. At the moment, Kingsley is the one who sets the tone, radiates the threat of a goal and passes,” he told reporters. “I wish everyone had this level.”
It was a wild game
Asked for his thoughts on his side’s last performance, Flick said: “On the one hand, we have to be happy with the result. The important thing was that we didn’t lose the game. It was a wild game. We gave away some easy goals. Maybe that is because we have to change more often. But we also scored three goals and came back twice”. He continued: “When you play like us, you must keep pushing. They were relatively easy goals, but we scored three goals again. We came back, even led once. Of course, the 2-2 goal was not a good time for us right before the break. The 3-2 right after the break made the second half a little difficult, but the team came back anyway. The workload we’ve had for the year was insane, then that the team does purely in terms of mentality is good.”
“The fact that there is fatigue in the squad is understandable, but we still have one or two weeks, we must see that we are defending our place in the table”. Bayern Munich are back in action on Wednesday when they host Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League. The European champions have already guaranteed first place in Group A. Three days later, the Bundesliga match at Union Berlin is expected.
