Kingsley Coman determined to stay fit to help Bayern Munich next season

France international Kingsley Coman has said that he has no pressure after the recent departures of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, and he is prepared to command a regular role with Bayern Munich next season. The young attacker has struggle with career-threatening ankle and knee injuries during his time with the Bavarian giants but he is determined to become 100 percent fit ahead of the forthcoming season.

Speaking to, Coman said that he has no concerns by the recent exits of Ribery and Robben and must concentrate on remaining injury-free for the 2019/2020 season, he said: “I don’t feel the pressure from Ribery and Robben’s departures anymore. I played in a lot of games and played an important role in the team last season. Admittedly, we now have two fewer wingers in the squad, so I can't get injured. I have to stay fit. I'm not 100 per cent yet. But in a couple weeks it will be ideal and I’ll be in form. I’m not worried about that.”

Coman experienced another injury-plagued season last time around and he nonetheless managed to contribute five goals and six assists from 21 league appearances. As such, it is quite evident that he has the quality to succeed with the club for the long-term but he needs to overcome his fitness concerns before the competition for places creeps up.

At the moment, Bayern have not pursued any new wingers but reports suggest that they could be after Leroy Sane, who is currently with Manchester City. The German is familiar with many of the Bayern players from the national team and the club seem prepared to break their transfer record with a £90m bid for the former Schalke 04 graduate. City boss Pep Guardiola has recently indicated that the ultimate decision over the move would be made by Sane.
