Alphonso Boyle Davies is a Canadian professional soccer player who plays as a winger, left-back, or forward for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich and the Canada national team.
He was the first player born in the 2000s to play in a Major League Soccer match.
Alphonso Davies: Heart, Covid, Vaccinated Or Not, Booster
Bayern Munich left back Alphonso Davies has been sidelined with evidence of heart muscle inflammation after being infected with the coronavirus, coach Julian Nagelsmann said Friday.
The Canada international will be out of action for at least “the coming weeks” after the inflammation, known as myocarditis, was detected in a follow-up examination after his return to training this week, Nagelsmann said.
The coach described the inflammation as “mild” and “not so dramatic,” citing the results of an ultrasound examination.
At his press conference Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann detailed that Alphonso Davies is experiencing myocarditis and will be on the sidelines for the “next few weeks” as he recovers.
This news, of course, comes after the numerous cases of COVID-19 that broke when the team returned to Sabener following the holiday hiatus. While it would be irresponsible to say if the myocarditis was definitely brought upon by COVID-19, the condition has been listed among the side effects of the virus.
Vaccinated or not:
Ahead of a trip to Koln on Saturday, Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann told reporters when offering an update on Davies: “Yesterday, during our follow-up examination that we do with every player that has had COVID-19, we detected signs of mild myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.
Davies will miss three matches as Canada attempts to qualify for the men’s World Cup for the first time since 1986: at Honduras on Jan. 27, in Hamilton against the United States on Jan. 29, and in El Salvador on Feb. 2.
Davies was one of nine Bayern players who missed the German champions’ 2-1 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach last Friday after testing positive for COVID-19, although Nagelsmann wouldn’t comment on whether Davies’ heart problem was a result of his infection or not.
