Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman might be lagging behind teammates Leroy Sané and Serge Gnabry on the depth chart and in the scoring column, but the Frenchman turned in a two-goal effort to help the Bavarians seal a 3-0 victory over SC Freiburg.
For coach Thomas Tuchel, it was good to see Coman contribute — even if the manager feels the 27-year-old had Lady Luck on his side.
“King played very well on the right side. He needed those goals and was involved in a lot of dangerous situations — he was a bit lucky in both goals, but he needed that. I said Friday that he was a bit behind in terms of goals and assists, so it was a perfect performance from him today,” Tuchel said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
Coman might feel a bit as if he in a “damned if you, damned if you don’t” scenario under Tuchel, but regardless of how he scored, it was good that he did — for his confidence and to help show his boss that he can make things happen on the scoresheet.
