Kingsley Coman Has Gone From Contemplating Retirement To Winning His Team The Champions League In Just Over A Year

He is considered by many as one of the most talented players in world football but for all his success, the career of Kingsley Coman has been blighted with serious injuries.

The 24-year-old, who won his 20th major trophy in last night's Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain, scoring the winner in the 59th minute, has undoubtably enjoyed huge success in his career thus far.

But in 2018, after returning from another serious foot problem, an emotional Coman opened up about his injury woes in an interview with TF1, and even suggested an early retirement if they continued.

"It was a very difficult year," Coman told TF1. "When I hurt myself, it was the end of the world for me.

"I hope I don't have to relive what I've been through, enough is enough. I will not accept a third operation - it will mean maybe my foot is not made for this level.

"I will then lead another life, an anonymous life."

From torn knee ligaments to serious ankle problems, Coman struggled to stay fit. He ruptured the syndesmosis ligament in his left ankle on the opening day of the 2018/19 season against Hoffenheim; his first game since injuring the same ankle in February.

He was also ruled him out of France's World Cup winning campaign; a bitter blow for somebody so young.

But to his credit, the winger has once again become a key figure in Bayern Munich's success of late, bouncing back from a number of debilitating injuries to make a total of 43 appearances in all competitions this season.

And his 11th goal of the season in last night's Champions League final, against his former club, was the perfect way to end such an important season for the Frenchman.

Let's hope Coman can avoid serious injuries in the coming years and continue to shine on the big stage.
