Paris Saint-German manager Laurent Blanc says he regrets selling Kingsley Coman to Juventus, but wished the teenager the best in his career.
Coman joined the Bianconeri in the 2014 off-season following the expiration of his contract at the Parc des Princes but managed just five appearances for Massmiliano Allegri’s side during the 2014/15 season, winning both the Serie A and Coppa Italia in his first season at the club.
Having since moved to Bayern on a two-year loan deal in the off-season, the highly-rated 19-year-old has already made an impact at the Allianz Arena, netting two goals in six Bundesliga appearances so far and Blanc admits the youngster moving away is a big loss for Les Parisiens.
“He had qualities, potential. I regretted that he left Paris,” Blanc is quoted as saying by Goal.
“He played five matches with Juventus – had he stayed at PSG last year he would have done the same. He wanted to try the experience of Juventus – it worked moderately.
“He went to Bayern and now he is in the France team. I want him to do the best for his club and have a great international career.”
