Bayern Munich winger Coman: Why Guardiola so good for me

Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has paid tribute to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

The biggest influence on his career — aside from childhood hero Ronaldinho — is Guardiola, who signed him for Bayern in 2015.

"What he asked me to do was to see football differently from my position," Coman told the Daily Mail. "He asked me to play wide, really go one against one, to make the difference like that.

"For me, the perfect game is to do a lot of skills, to help the team and to defend, and create a lot of opportunities.

"What I love is the way (Guardiola) played was to create space to be one against one. To have a coach when you are that young who has confidence in you and just wants you to go and play is amazing. When I play, I try to do beautiful stuff."
