The Bundesliga star was sidelined after a bout with Covid-19 last term before developing myocarditis. Davies recovered to take part in Bayern’s successful title charge ultimately, but he acknowledges that there was a period where he did not know if he would return to the pitch.

Alphonso had doubts about whether he was still going to be able to play football

Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies admits that he feared his playing days were over after his heart condition diagnosis, with the Canada international keen to kick on now that he is back on the pitch. The Bundesliga star was sidelined after a bout with Covid-19 last term before developing myocarditis. Davies recovered to take part in Bayern’s successful title charge ultimately, but he acknowledges that there was a period where he did not know if he would return to the pitch. “That was very scary, especially because the doctors are saying that they don’t know how long I was supposed to be out,” Davies said.

 

“I think that was the most scariest part. At that time, I had doubts in my head about whether I was still going to be able to play football, but everything worked out in the end. I’m happy, and I’m grateful for the doctor taking such good care of me. I’m so glad that I can be back on the pitch.”

The Bayern team are excited to have Sadio Mane

The Canadian star will return for action with a new-look Bayern frontline this term after Liverpool winger Sadio Mane arrived and long-term striker Robert Lewandowski sealed a move to Barcelona – but he feels the club will adapt to the latter’s absence while praising the input of their new recruit. “He’s going to be missed on the pitch, but I’m sure Bayern head coach Julian Nagelsmann has a plan in his head for how he’s going to fix the team for games,” he added. “Mane? He’s a calm guy, down-to-earth, humble guy, but on the pitch, you can tell he’s a leader. He’s a good player and he’s a big piece to add to the team. So we’re excited to have him, and we’re looking forward to what he can bring to this team. An important piece left, but also an important piece arrived.”
