Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman has dealt with numerous injuries in the past. The young Frenchman was sidelined for a good portion of the first part of the season and also missed the World Cup due to injury. But now, he feels better.

Much better.

Surprisingly, he might have had a little help from Uli Hoeneß in achieving some level of comfort despite a sometimes frustrating season.

A few months ago, Uli Hoeneß invited me to his home on the Tegernsee, so that we could get to know each other better and to exchange ideas. Just the two of us. It was a very pleasant atmosphere. He had specially prepared some delicious Bavarian cookies for me.

In his interview with Socrates magazine he continued:

He especially wanted to know how I tick [work]. After this talk, I understood even better why many people say that Bayern Munich is like family.

Hoeneß gave the youngster few more pieces of advice:

He told me that if I give everything to the club on a daily basis, the bosses will always be there for me and stand by my side. I feel even better since that conversation.

Since 2015, Coman has played for Die Rekordmeister. Coman was initially on loan from Juventus until he was firmly committed to Bayern in 2017 for 21 million euros. Coman’s contract with the Munich will run until 2023.

It is very nice to hear that Bayern’s front office seeks to connect with and personally look out for the players. These kind of talks mean the world to most athletes.
