Kingsley Coman from FC Bayern is one of the best attackers in Europe. However, the 25-year-old is developing more and more into a winger who takes on defensive tasks. In his homeland, Coman has now received a lot of praise.

France coach Didier Deschamps could be completely satisfied. With 8: 0 (3: 0) his "Equipe Tricolore" swept over Kazakhstan in the World Cup qualification last Saturday. PSG superstar Kylian Mbappé was the celebrated hero with four goals, but it was also a pleasant evening for the Bayern Munich legionnaires: Lucas Hernández and Dayot Upamecano held the defensive together, winger Kingsley Coman also stood out with two assists - despite a new role .

As in the Nations League games against Belgium and Spain last October, Deschamps relied on a system with a three-way chain. The role as the right rail player actually got Bayern's Benjamin Pavard, but against Kazakhstan, the national coach relied on Kingsley Coman.

"It worked out well for the first time. I'm not the strongest defensively, for an offensive player I defend as well as I can," said the attacker, satisfied afterwards, to "Téléfoot". He had convinced Deschamps in advance that he could play in a more withdrawn position, said Coman: "At the club, I developed a little in the same position with the ball."
