Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman accepts domestic violence charge
Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has accepted a charge of domestic violence against his former girlfriend, and has been fined €5,000.
Coman, 21, pleaded guilty to attacking model Sephora Goignan at her home in Magny-le-Hongre outside Paris in June. Goignan, the mother of Coman's two daughters, was signed off work for eight days following the attack.
Coman missed Bayern training on Thursday to be present in court in Meaux. The France international accepted the punishment and agreed to pay Goignan's court fees.
Coman has lifted five league titles in three different countries, winning Serie A at Juventus, two Ligue 1 with PSG and two Bundesliga crowns since joining Bayern in 2015 -- initially on a two-year loan deal, before the Bavarians made the move permanent in April.
He is the second former PSG youth academy graduate to have been arrested in the past year, after defender Antoine Conte was detained for allegedly attacking a teenager with a baseball bat and leaving him in a critical condition in December.
