Despite being months removed from the UEFA Champions League loss to FC Bayern Munich, the defeat remains a sensitive spot for Paris Saint-Germain supporters.
In the 90 minutes, the lone goal came courtesy of the former capital club youth product Kingsley Coman, who scored off a header, which is odd from him as he stated during an interview with Bild (via Bundesliga).
The 24-year-old revealed a story about his eventual game-winning goal against his former club where he admits that he’s not the biggest fan of headers despite calling for a center from his teammate Joshua Kimmich.
“It’s just the way it is that I get a bit frightened of heading the ball, and my teammates make fun of me over it,” Coman said.
“You can see it in the pictures. I closed my eyes for the header. It’s instinctive – a natural reflex. I always try to keep my eyes open, but at the last moment, I always have this reflex.”
According to the German league website, Coman only scored a header goal once all 2019-20 season against Red Star Belgrade to open the Champions League group stage for the Bavarian club.
The loss already stung Les Parisiens’ supporters because the deciding goal came from a former youth product. However, to now find out that Coman had his eyes close and scored from a manner that he doesn’t usually prefer now adds salt to a healing wound.
