[In 2018 Kingsley Coman made comments suggesting he would consider retirement if he suffered a serious injury again in his career] It was a very difficult year. When I hurt myself, it was the end of the world for me. I hope I don’t have to relive what I’ve been through, enough is enough. I will not accept a third operation – it will mean maybe my foot is not made for this level. I will then lead another life, an anonymous life
[However, he backtracked shortly after, telling German media that he was trying to explain how another rehabilitation on his ankle would be crushing] That was misinterpreted. I meant that I wouldn’t feel like having to go to rehabilitation again if I suffered the same injury once again in the same year - meaning in the next few weeks. I didn’t comment on anything further out in the future

[Kingsley Coman is fully committed to Bayern Munich] I don’t know what I want in five years so anything is possible. To stay at the top level and to win the most titles. Bayern is one of the clubs where you can do that.
[Asked to pick out the best coach] I would say Guardiola because he is the one who made me start playing a little more regularly even if I had played a few matches at Juve. For a player in my position, a winger who likes to hit and provoke, he is the best coach we can have because that is what demands us the most. He creates systems to have one-on-one situations and it’s the system where I can flourish the most. He didn’t ask me to have stats. He just asked me to take, hit and centre. And that was what I appreciated very much.

[Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has apologised and is facing a fine from his club after driving his McLaren 570S Spider to training] I would like to apologise to the club and Audi for not having come to training in my company car. The reason was a damaged wing mirror on my Audi. Still, that was a mistake, of course I can see that. As a reparation, I will visit the Audi plant in Ingolstadt for an autograph hour as soon as possible and bring some attention to the employees

[Kingsley Coman says he will have no problem if Bayern Munich sign Leroy Sane, and has vowed to stay and fight for his place in the team] If Sane came, it would not be a problem! Except if the club says to me that they no longer need me, but I think the club knows what it has in me. The situation of Leroy Sane has nothing to do with my own future. When I came to Bayern Munich we had Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and me, and I was still a young player, in front of the legends Ribery and Robben! You can see that that’s not a problem for me. It is better for the team if there are many players at this level
[Coman went on to insist that he is in no rush to make a decision on his long-term future] I have a contract until 2023, which means we have time. I want to finish the season, after that, in the summer, I can think about my situation: what I want to do, what decision is good
