Bad news for Bayern. The record champions have to do without Alphonso Davies indefinitely. The full-back is out due to signs of heart muscle inflammation.
FC Bayern will not be able to count on the services of defender Alphonso Davies in the coming weeks. The Canadian, who was infected with the corona virus just over a week ago, will be absent indefinitely due to suspected heart muscle inflammation. This was announced by Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann on Friday.
“At Phonzy, yesterday in the follow-up examination that we do with every player who was infected with Corona, we found signs of mild myocarditis – i.e. myocarditis. He’s out of training for the time being. He will are not available, not even for the next few weeks,” said Nagelsmann at the press conference before the game on Saturday (from 3:30 p.m. in the t-online live ticker) against 1. FC Cologne.
The Munich team started the second half of the season last week with a bankruptcy against Gladbach. The record champions (mainly due to corona) had to do without a number of established forces and resort to youth players.
