Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has expressed his delight at Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival at the club after the two enjoyed a successful period together at Paris Saint-Germain, FourFourTwo reports.
The former PSG boss handed the France international his professional debut at the tender age of just 16 and they are set to team up again after Ancelotti succeeded Pep Guardiola as manager of the Bundesliga champions.
Coman, 20, had a somewhat successful Euro 2016 campaign with France – featuring mainly from the bench as an impact substitute as the hosts fell at the final hurdle against Portugal.
But the winger, who is on loan from Juventus, is looking forward to the new season and believes Ancelotti is the man to take them forward.
“I was really pleased when I heard Ancelotti would replace [Pep] Guardiola. I know him from my time with PSG and have nothing but fond memories of him,” Coman said.
“He is a great coach and a wonderful human being. Communication is really important to him. His door is always open to anyone. He never raises his voice, he is a natural leader. He can deal with every kind of person.
“He is very experienced, which means it is nearly impossible to surprise him. He is extremely professional. He always wants his team to be in control. He is very flexible tactically and always comes up with some new tactical idea.
“It’s definitely not a bad thing for me that I worked with Ancelotti before. He gave me the chance when I was just 16. But I know that I will have to work hard to achieve my goals. I was happy with my first season at Bayern, but I want more next year.
“We are very ambitious and I have no doubt Ancelotti is the right man for us.”
