Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman wants to see his club go on to win back-to-back Champions League titles and dominate European football for the foreseeable future.

The German giants won their first European trophy in seven years when Coman’s solitary goal helped Bayern beat PSG 1-0 in the final.

And while Coman is delighted to call himself a European champion, he believes his side are still young enough to go on a run that could see Hansi Flick’s squad win multiple trophies in the years to come.

Just as Real Madrid did between 2016 and 2018, when Zinedine Zidane’s side won three consecutive European titles.

“We are young or in our prime, so we still have time,” Coman told german newspaper SportBild. “We can and want to defend the title."

“Between 2016 and 2018 Real Madrid won the Champions League three times. I am sure that we can shape an era with this team."

Coman’s side currently sit top of the Bundesliga table, two points above RB Leipzig after 14 matches.

And despite a tough group stage line up of Atletico Madrid, RB Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow, Bayern made short work of their opponents and finished the preliminary round with five wins, one draw and zero losses.

The Munich side are now set to face Lazio in the Last 16 of the competition and are seen as the de-facto favourites for the competition, alongside Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
