Bayern Munich Star Kingsley Coman Faces Hefty Fine For Driving McLaren And Not Company Audi Car
Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman could be slapped with a hefty fine after driving to training in his £170,000 McLaren as opposed to his company Audi car.
The European giants have a lucrative sponsorship deal with Audi and the German manufacturers have provided every player with a brand spanking new whip since 2002.
Bayern players are expected to use their Audi cars to and from their training base as part of the deal.
But Coman has landed himself in hot water after he became the latest player to break the rule.
He drove to training in his stunning McLaren 570S Spider and is now facing a fine by the club.
