Bayern Munich winger  Kingsley Coman talks about the goal against PSG.

The best moment for Bayern Munich in 2020 arrived in August when the team played Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final. The narrow 1-0 win in this game helped Die Roten to make history as they completed the second treble in seven years.

It was a tight game against the French Champions. Thomas Tuchel’s men were stung by a former PSG youth graduate as Kingsley Coman scored a header at the back post early in the second half. Coman’s header was enough for the German Champions to win their sixth CL title.

Coman was being used as an option from the bench by Hansi Flick in the previous rounds, while Ivan Perisic was starting on the left flank. Flick’s decisive team selection turned out to be a masterstroke in the final.

The French winger spoke to Bild (via TZ) this week and explained all the things that happened before that goal against PSG. Coman admitted that he is very poor at heading as he rarely manages to see the ball until the last moment. When it mattered, Coman was able to score at the biggest stage in European football.

"“I’m scared when I get headers and I always close my eyes. My team-mates joke about it.”“The day before the game we practiced finishing, and I didn’t convert a single header.”"

More from Bayern Strikes

Coman will go down as a hero in Bayern’s history for scoring such an important goal. This goal also turned out to be pivotal for the French winger’s career. He has been an inconsistent and frustrating wide player that can do the right things until the final third. His decision-making often let him and the team down.

Since the goal against PSG, Coman looks much more confident on the pitch. He has become one of the most consistent players for Die Roten this season. Coman currently has the knack of coming up with a goal and assist when Bayern needs him the most. Along with Robert Lewandowski, Coman has been the most efficient forward for Die Roten this season.

A player that was once contemplating retirement due to injuries is now delivering every weekend for the best team in Europe. It is an amazing story for Coman at Bayern until now. There is more to come from the winger as the best years of his career are ahead of him.

dark. Next. Three things to watch in home game against Mainz

In the last game of 2020, Coman couldn’t contribute much as he was substituted in the first half against Bayer Leverkusen due to injury. Fortunately, it was a minor injury for the winger as he returned to training this week. He is in contention to feature against Mainz.
