Vidal: ‘Coman would help Bayern’

Arturo Vidal calls for Kingsley Coman to follow him from Juventus to Bayern Munich - ‘he’d be a big help’.

The Bianconeri have rejected several approaches from the Bavarian giants for Coman, but Vidal, who did make the move, has talked up his former teammate.

“Coman isn’t just young and quick,” the Chilean international told Bild.

“He’s also a great player in terms of his quality. He has tremendous potential for improvement, and if he were to follow me here it’d be a big help for Bayern.”

Vidal also explained why he chose the Bianconeri over Bayern Munich in 2011.

“I had given my word to Bayern, but Bayer Leverkusen wouldn’t sell me at that time, and preferred to give me to Juve.

“I must admit, I’m glad things worked out this way, because I had [four] exceptional years at Juve. I grew a lot in Italy, and now Bayern will get the benefit.”
