This should come as no surprise, honestly.

It’s no secret that the Bundesliga hosts some of the quickest footballers in Europe. Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman clocked the fastest top speed of the season last weekend in the 3-3 draw against RB Leipzig. The French winger was officially recorded at reaching a speed of 35.9 km/hour to add to his hat-trick of assists in what was one of his strongest individual performances of the season. It was Coman last season that clocked the fastest top speed in the Bundesliga in a win against SC Paderborn when he registered 35.7 km/h.

Per a new report from kicker, both Coman and Alphonso Davies are among the top 10 fastest players in the Bundesliga. Interestingly enough, Coman’s top speed last season of 35.7 km/h hasn’t been equaled or bettered by anyone except himself. Some players have come close to Coman’s record, but they haven’t been able to break his threshold.

Per kicker’s report, the top 10 speeds in the Bundesliga so far this season have been:

  1. Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich) - 35.9km/hr
  2. Silas Wamangituka (VfB Stuttgart) - 35.42km/hr
  3. Dayot Upamecano (RB Leipzig) - 35.39km/hr
  4. Sheraldo Becker (Union Berlin) - 35.20km/hr
  5. Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) - 35.16km/hr
  6. Roberto Massimo (VfB Stuttgart) - 35.10km/hr
  7. Justin Kluivert (RB Leipzig) - 35.06km/hr
  8. Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich) - 35.04km/hr
  9. Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen) - 34.99km/hr
  10. Maxence Lacroix (VfL Wolfsburg) - 34.93km/hr

It’s no surprise that both Coman and Davies are both in the top ten and both of them have had their injury problems already this season, so both of them could very well break the mark of 35.9km/hr. Davies just marked his return to action in Bayern’s 2-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League after over a month on the sidelines due to an ankle injury, so he’s still working his way back to full fitness.
