Coman not pressured by France call-up

Bayern München midfielder Kingsley Coman insists he does not feel the pressure of being called up for the France squad and says he's 'here to stay'.

Coman, 19, joined the Bavarians on a two-year loan from Juventus in the off-season and has impressed in his performances for Pep Guardiola's side, netting two goals in six Bundesliga matches so far this campaign.

The teenager's impressive start to the season has seen Coman drafted into Didier Deschamps' France squad for the friendlies with Spain and France during the international break, and while the youngster admits he is surprised at the call-up, is not intimidated by the prospect of representing his country.

"I didn't expect to be called up for the national team so early," the teenager told Bayern's official website. "Of course it's special to play for my country. But I don't feel much pressure.

"I'm not scared. I'm confident and I know I have what it takes, FC Bayern just fit my style of play. I've come to stay."
