Juventus perfect for young players, says Coman

The 18-year-old is confident that he can make the next step in his development at the Serie A champions after leaving Paris Saint-Germain
French youngster Kingsley Coman believes that Juventus are the ideal club for youngsters to develop and is keen to follow in the footsteps of compatriot Paul Pogba.

The 18-year-old joined the Ligue 1 champions from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer earlier this summer and he is optimistic about his chances of getting regular first-team action at Juve.

"When the Juventus directors presented their project to me, they told me about Pogba. He is an example of how young players are given the chance to shine here at Juventus," Coman told Le Parisien.

"It would have been much more difficult at Paris Saint-Germain.

"The people here at Juventus are only looking at my abilities. The moment I got here, they told me that I would get the chance to play if I was good enough.

"The opportunity is there and I would like to play between 15 and 20 games this season."

Coman made his official debut in Juventus' 1-0 Serie A win over Chievo at the weekend, featuring 68 minutes before he made way for Fernando Llorente.
