Kingsley Coman has apologized for breaking a corporate sponsorship deal Bayern Munich has with car manufacturer Audi.

Bayern Munich is trying to get their players back to practice while still adhering to social distancing rules in place in Germany.

So while the players are all behaving from that standpoint, winger Kingsley Coman found himself in trouble for another reason.

The Bavarian giants are partly owned by German car manufacturer Audi. There is also a corporate sponsorship deal in place between the two entities.

As such, all players are provided with a car by Audi and the terms of the agreement state that they should drive to and from practice in a company car.

Yesterday Frenchman Coman decided that the Audi was not usable so he took his modest McLaren to work. An act that landed him in hot water with his bosses.

Today though the player made an effort to act first and apologize by offering a gesture of goodwill to the club’s sponsors.

Speaking to Bild, he said:

“I would like to apologize 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.”
