Kingsley Coman is fined by Bayern Munich for training with a McLaren and not the club-supplied Audi, according to the German daily Bild. The Frenchman apologizes, with good reason.
We don’t mess with cars in Germany. Partner of Bayern Munich until 2029, and even shareholder (8.33%), Audi wants to see the players behind the wheel of its models. So when one of them takes liberties, the club cracks down. And the fines fall.
In recent months, this has happened to Niklas Sule and Philippe Coutinho, who arrived at the training center with a Ferrari and a Mercedes respectively, as well as sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, who had to drop 50,000 euros.
A broken retro on the Audi
This time, according to the German daily Bild, it was Kingsley Coman who got caught. The Frenchman joined training behind the wheel of his splendid McLaren 570S. A British racing car of 570 horsepower. The former PSG and Juve player admitted his fault and apologized, even if he had a good reason.
“I would like to apologize to the club and to Audi for not coming to practice with my company car. The reason was that I had a damaged rear-view mirror on my Audi. But that was when even a mistake. ” To be forgiven, Kingsley Coman would plan to visit the Audi factory in Ingolstadt and do a book signing.
