This card can be a very strange card to use with it being an absolutely dreadful LM/LW/LF in my opinion due to a complete inability to deal with any RB he comes up against due to Coman having very lucklustre strength meaning that against any half decent RB such as Valencia for example with decent pace and strength above 70 he cannot do anything on the wing as he cannot beat them and also due to his passing not being great when it isnt boosted by a chemistry style (I used him on basic for the first 5 games). He is usable as a winger when used with a chemistry style such as an Architect which I used to help out his weaker passing and strength stats which made him able to an extent to be able to deal with good RB's but still was not worth 15k as a winger when there were plenty of better wingers out there even in the Bundesliga (specifically Leon Bailey and Serge Gnabry both being better options as an out and out winger with both being at least 7k cheaper at time of writing). In 10 games at LW in the above squad he scored 2 goals and got 2 assists.
Where Kingsley Coman actually shined was when I decided to give him another go this time at CAM when I switched to 4-1-2-1-2 (2) using custom tactics to try POTM Lucas at ST. Immediately my opinion of Coman changed to raving about the card due to his previous problems of not being able to beat players or pass both becoming non-issues with him being able to take on opposing midfields thanks to his 5* Skills actually being useful for me in central positions against opposing midfields (Especially against other 4-1-2-1-2 (2) players) and his passing was noticeably better with his through balls more often than not leading to a goal from one of my two strikers. His finishing and long shots were both excellent with him tucking away chances that neither POTM Lucas, IF Lozano,or Alassane Plea could score for me despite his stats indicating that he should not be able to, His pace was a huge asset on counter attacks with him often driving from deep to carve out chances from opposition attacks before humiliating defenders and tucking away a low driven into the bottom corner. The biggest surprise for me was easily his heading which he could score a surprising amount of headers despite being very weak and having 52 heading with him scoring headers that looked closer to Olivier Giroud than to Kingsley Coman. In the 38 games I used him at CAM he scored 25 Goals and got 21 Assists while easily outshining POTM Lucas Moura and my super-sub IF Lozano.
- Lightning Quick
- 5* Skills
- Long Shots
- Final Ball (Through Balls and Crosses)
- French, Bundesliga and Bayern Links
- Plays like an elite CAM (A bit like FUT Birthday Reus from FIFA 18)
- Short Passing
- General Inability to play in his natural position
- Dribbling did not feel 85 rating
- Stamina wasn't great
- 15k is quite pricey for this early in the game cycle
