‘It was hard I grew up here’ Kingsley Coman refuses to celebrate vs ‘home’ club PSG as Bayern leads in first leg of Champions League

Kingsley Coman made a comeback at the Parc Des Princes and astounded Paris Saint Germain after running the show for Bayern Munich during their high-voltage UCL round of sixteen clashes.

Bayern returned home with a 1-0 away win from the capital of France as PSG’s dismal run of play continues after struggling the whole game and playing like a feckless contestant in front of Julian Nagelsmann’s side.

The game was all square at half time although Bayern Munich put their feet onto the throat of Paris Saint Germain almost from the first kick of the game and immediately after the break, Coman found the net.

It was a howler from the Paris goalkeeper Donnarumma as Coman’s goal looked like a gift out of nowhere but the French-born Bayern winger didn’t celebrate his goal as a part of respect to his childhood club.

“It was hard to celebrate here, I grew up here. (My goal) was something we work on in training and I got it just right,” Coman said at the post-match press conference.

“A victory away from home is always good, we could have had more but in the end, we were delighted with 1-0,” he further added.

Coman began his professional career at Paris Saint-Germain, where he made his debut in 2013 at the age of 16 but he only played for PSG’s first team for one season before moving to Italian side Juventus.

After a two-year spell at Juventus, Coman joined Bayern Munich in 2015, where he has since become a key player for the team and became an integral part of Bayern’s success with numerous titles.

Bayern Munich will feel a little bit frustrated after missing some glorious opportunities to extend the lead but an away win against PSG will certainly boost their confidence.

The second leg will be played at the Allez Arena on March 9 as Coman and his Bayern side will be eyeing to dump Paris Saint Germain from the knockout stage with the home crowd backing them after taking the advantage in the first Leg.
