Coman, handed a starting berth against his former side, scored the only goal of the game in Lisbon, his second-half header proving enough to earn Bayern their sixth European Cup.

"It's extraordinary, it's a great happiness," said Coman. "I feel a little sadness for Paris, they've had an extraordinary journey and we must respect what Paris have done. We tried to keep them under pressure and they played on the counterattack mostly. We didn't concede a goal and that was the most important thing. Paris had a great game, but so did we. It was a great final."
