Hope is fading: Bayern star Coman apparently cancels European Championship

Kingsley Coman

Kingsley Coman’s season seems to be coming to a sad end. After tearing his muscle bundle, he has his own worst fears.

Kingsley Coman’s bad luck with injuries has continued this season. Having only just returned from a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee, he had to be carried off the pitch again in the match against 1. FC Köln. The Frenchman tore a muscle bundle in his adductor muscles, and Bayern said he would be out for „several weeks„.

The Bundesliga season is probably over for the winger. But things may get even worse for Coman. His participation in the European Championships in Germany with the French national team is also questionable.

According to L’Equipe, the 27-year-old no longer believes that he will make it to the European Championships. According to the report, national team coach Didier Deschamps already has two replacements on the books: Bradley Barcola (PSG) and Moussa Diaby (Aston Villa).

The final squad must be announced by 7 June and the Equipe Tricolore will play their opening match at the European Championships against Austria on 17 June.

Long injury list for Coman

For Coman, it would be the continuation of a never-ending injury history. he joined FC Bayern in 2015. Since then, he has missed 90 of 272 possible matches. There have rarely been phases in which he has played games in a row over a longer period of time. This season, too, he only remained injury-free from mid-September to mid-December.

His absence is also bitter for FC Bayern. In the semi-final clash with Real Madrid, coach Thomas Tuchel will have to do without the scorer of the winning goal in the 2020 Champions League final. The attack is causing the coach headaches anyway: Leroy Sané is suffering from constant pain, while the first leg against Real will be a race against time for Serge Gnabry after he tore a muscle fibre.
