Champions League final hero Kingsley Coman was delighted in Bayern Munich's European triumph as his lone goal sealed Paris Saint-Germain demise on Sunday, although the winger admitted that he felt “a bit sick” for the runners-up.
The French winner provided what ended up being the game-winning goal in the 59th minute, getting on the end of a cross from Joshua Kimmich, helping guide Bayern to the club's sixth Champions League title.
That goal will be particularly distasteful for the French club given Coman's history with PSG.
Born in Paris, Coman was with the Ligue 1 side for a decade from 2004 to 2014, making four appearances for the first team before signing with Juventus upon the expiration of his contract.
And Coman admitted that it was painful to see his boyhood club lose on the biggest stage, although that difficulty did not outweigh the joy that came from guiding Bayern to the title.
“It's an extraordinary feeling, a lot of happiness. I'm 100 per cent Bayern, but it makes me a bit sick for PSG,” Coman told RMC Sports.
“We've been trying to keep the game under control from the start. We won and we didn't take a goal today, that's the most important thing.
“Paris played a great game, we played a great game and we're really happy.”
Coman joined Bayern from Juve in 2015 on a two-year loan, which was then made permanent in 2017.
Bayern joins Barcelona and Real Madrid as the only three clubs to score 500 Champions League goals.
