Kingsley Coman, Bayern's newest signing recently arrived on a two-year loan from Juventus on August 30, 2015.

When the exciting wonderkid arrived in the Allianz Arena, he was brimming with confidence, and it showed immediately in his first training sessions with his new teammates.

Coman arrived as a potential replacement for Bayern's injured superstars Robben and Ribery. Bayern also recruited Douglas Costa to boost their attacking options. Both deals have looked like great business for the German Champions so early on in the season.

Matthias Sammer, the Bayern director states that he sees massive potential for Coman in the Bundesliga. "'Kingsley is quick, nimble, good on the ball, and has good game intelligence." 

This will be a great opportunity for Coman's game to develop as he is only 19. After a month of being in Bavaria, Coman has proved his worth to Guardiola and Sammer.

Bayern fans and management were astounded by his early performances, scoring against Darmstadt, he instantly became a favourite of the fans and Pep Guardiola. It is safe to say that Bayern have made a great investment as Coman looks like he has a great future ahead of him. 

However, when Ribery and Robben return, Coman's role may become jeopardised. But the quality and the sheer confidence of Kingsley Coman will certainly challenge fellow Frenchman Franck Ribery's spot in the lineup.

The ageing winger still has some gas left in him but after battling a few injuries and having a few months off, Ribery will definitely have to earn the right to start, an unfamiliar pressure. 

Bayern will face off against bitter rivals Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.
