Bayern Munich appears to be without 21-year-old star and Canadian international Alphonso Davies for some time.
Bear Byrne manager Julian Nagelsmann confirmed Friday that Davies has been temporarily suspended from training sessions after he was diagnosed with mild myocarditis, a heart condition often associated with COVID-19 cases.
According to the BBC, Davis has not appeared to the German giants since he contracted the coronavirus on December 17.
“With Phonzy, when we did the follow-up examination yesterday that we had with every player with COVID-19, we detected signs of mild inflammation of the heart muscle, that is, myocarditis,” Nagelsmann explained. “He will be sitting in training until further notice. He will not be available, also in the coming weeks. Ultrasound shows this myocarditis is not dramatic but a sign of myocarditis. However, it should heal and this will definitely take some time.”
The Athletic reported that Davies will miss at least four weeks of matches, which means he will not play in Canada in the next three World Cup qualifiers. The Associated Press adds that “myocarditis is a mild and temporary condition in the vast majority of cases,” suggesting that Davis may be back on the court sometime next month.
Bayern is at the top of the German league table with 43 points, six points behind rivals Borussia Dortmund, and faces FC Cologne (6th with 28 points) on Saturday.
