FC Bayern has a striker problem that has not been known for a long time. None of the regular players see themselves as real strikers, the only trained centre-forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting does not get beyond his role as a backup player. Now a new alternative could open up internally for Munich.
After FC Bayern had not scored a goal for the first time in the Bundesliga under head coach Julian Nagelsmann (0:1 at FC Augsburg), a detailed error analysis was carried out until the end.
Above all, the question of why the record champions suddenly found it so difficult to score goals in the front row was discussed intensively. It is being considered who could play up front next to Sadio Mané, who was set until the end.
Thomas Müller was not completely convincing as a striker, and Serge Gnabry in his current form is probably not suitable for the starting XI in the front row.
Coman soon in the top striker of FC Bayern
The name Kingsley Coman has been mentioned more and more recently when it comes to new approaches to the striker positions. The 26-year-old is usually deployed on the attacking wings at Bayern Munich. According to information from the “kicker”, the French national player should “can well imagine” trying to be the sole striker or as a partner alongside Sadio Mané.
As a temporary solution, Coman could therefore imagine chasing goals as a center forward for the German record champions. The Paris native has not appeared as a great snapper in his professional career so far. He has scored 31 times in 161 Bundesliga games for FC Bayern.
Coman’s headed goal in the 2020 Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain will not be forgotten, with which he gave his colors the title in the premier class.
