Kingsley Coman fined for daring to drive another automobile to training instead of Audi

Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman has found himself in trouble with his club for failing to drive to work in his company car.

The Bavarian side have a key relationship with German manufacturers Audi, who happen to own an 8.33 per cent stake in the club.

As such, first-team players are expected to drive their Audi company cars to and from their Sabener Strasse training base.

But Coman, 23, is the latest Bayern star to flout this rule – and faces the wrath of his club.

The Frenchman arrived at Sabener Strasse in his £174,000 McLaren 570S Spider.

Philippe Coutinho and Niklas Sule had previously stirred the pot, by being spotted in their Mercedes and Ferrari motors respectively.

This had lead to sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic threatening to fine stars £43,500 for ignoring the rules.

As well as Audi cars, other VW group vehicles, such as Bentleys or Porsches would be acceptable.

And while no fines have yet been announced, Coman has made a public apology – blaming a “broken wing mirror” for the mishap.

The reason was a damaged wing mirror on my Audi. Still, that was a mistake, of course I can see that.

He told Bild: “I would like to apologise to the club and Audi for not having come to training in my company car.

“The reason was a damaged wing mirror on my Audi. Still, that was a mistake, of course I can see that.

“As a reparation, I will visit the Audi plant in Ingolstadt for an autograph hour as soon as possible and bring some attention to the employees.”

Coman and Co have been back in training at Sabener Strasse since Monday last week, as the Bundesliga tentatively attempts to approach a return, with football having been KO’d by the coronavirus pandemic last month.
