Bayern Munich comes from getting their pass to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after defeating Paris Saint-Germain 2-0. Among the protagonists of the party was Kingsley Coman, French footballer who could follow in the footsteps of André-Pierre Gignac.
Gignac signed for Tigres de la UANL against all odds. The French soccer player left the elite of European soccer to play in Liga MX. Coman, a player who has already taken the first step, could go the same way: feel attracted to Mexican soccer.
“We played against Tigres in the Club World Cupafter having obtained the UEFA Champions League, and it was a very good game and I think it would be great to play in their stadium”, acknowledged Coman when recalling his match against Tigres de la UANL, in a statement released by ESPN.
Gignac and a story that could repeat itself
Curiosity brought Giganc to Liga MX and love has kept him in Mexico. Kingsley Coman could follow the same path as the UANL Tigres striker. The Bayern Munich footballer acknowledged his interest in play in Mexican territory and learn from Latino cultures.
“It would be good (to play in Mexico), I’ve never been there. It is a country that I like, I like the countries of Latin America, I have never been there, but I see the culture, the music, everything; something I like, so I think I would love to discover this country, in a World Cup“, he admitted.
