Kingsley Coman: "I can imagine staying at Bayern Munich for 12 years like Franck Ribery"

Kingsley Coman believes he can emulate fellow Frenchman Franck Ribery and spend more than a decade at Bayern Munich as he revels in life with the Bundesliga's record champions.

Coman has already been at Bayern for four years, winning the Bundesliga title in every campaign so far since he joined the Bavarian giants initially on a two-year loan deal from Juventus in 2015.

Ribery was 24 when he moved to the Allianz Arena — nearly a year older than Coman is now — and became a club legend over 12 seasons in which he won a record nine league titles, six DFB Cups and the UEFA Champions League in a 2012/13 campaign that saw his club complete an unprecedented treble.

"Of course I can imagine staying here for 12 years like Franck," Coman told Bayern's club magazine 51. "I'm sure that I will stay here at Bayern for a long time: the city is great, the club is very good, we're winning trophies — we're just missing the Champions League."

With Bayern having already charged into the knockout stages of European club football's premier competition, the pacy France international has an opportunity to help bring Bayern their first 'trophy with the big ears' since Ribery's famous night at Wembley six years ago.

Even if Bayern do not reach the summit of continental football, Coman, who has featured in 95 Bundesliga matches for the club, is happy with almost everything: "I wouldn't change a thing, except for the weather."
