‘Like Lee Kang-in…’ A dagger to his home team → A striker who did not celebrate

It was Kingsley Coman (27) who decided the fate of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG, France) and Bayern Munich (Germany), which were held on the stage of the UEFA (European Football Federation) Champions League. Truly a golden bone that broke the balance of the tense zero. However, Komang did not perform the ceremony with a firm expression. It was a ‘yes’ level to his parents’ team.

Comang started in the first leg of the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 against PSG held at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 15th (Korean time) and scored the opening goal to lead the team to a 1-0 victory in the 8th minute of the second half. He shook the PSG net by connecting a long cross from Alfonso Davies from the left flank with a non-stop shot.

A valuable opening goal scored in enemy territory. However, the expression of Komang, who scored the goal, was only dark. Soon, he raised both hands and made an apologetic gesture. It was his own home team, the home stadium where he first stepped on the professional stage, and a courtesy towards the fans.안전놀이터

PSG is where Komang grew up in the youth team from the age of eight. And in February 2013, at just 16 years, 8 months and 4 days old, he became the youngest player ever to make a first-team debut. However, he failed to settle down properly at PSG, and left for Juventus for more playing time. Afterwards, he went on loan to Bayern Munich and succeeded until a complete transfer.

As a member of Bayern Munich, he visited the home stadium of his parents’ team and faced off with his team. Coman threatened the defense of his home team throughout the game, and eventually scored a goal. However, Komang showed respect for his parent team by not holding a ceremony. England’s 90MIN also said, “Comang, who was born in Paris, showed respect for his former club by not holding a ceremony after the opening goal that gave Munich the lead.”

In an interview with Canal Plus after the match, Coman said, “Scoring a goal at the Parc des Princes has been a dream since I was a child. So it was a special moment because this is the club and the city where I grew up.” “I didn’t,” he said at the time.

Coincidentally, Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) had a similar situation this season. Lee Kang-in scored a dramatic winning goal in the 38th minute of the second half in an away game against Valencia last October, 1-1. However, Lee Kang-in refrained from the ceremony with his hands above his head. This is because, like Komang, Valencia is a team that Lee Kang-in has been involved with since his youth days and even made his professional debut. Even at the time, it became a hot topic through the Spanish media that “I did not hold a ceremony out of respect for my former team.”
