Alphonso Davies witnessed the exclusion of an immediate return to action in Bayern Munich, with Bundesliga giants revealing signs of inflammation of the heart muscle in a player who had recently recovered from COVID-19.
The Canadian international defender completed the first trip in 2022 for the reigning German champions after he published a positive coronavirus test result.
Julian Nagelsmann’s team suffered a 2: 1 defeat with Borussia Monchengladbach in his absence, and the talented 21-year-old will not return to the dispute in the foreseeable future after having another health problem.
His position in qualifying for the Canadian World Cup at the end of January is also questionable.

How long has Alphonso Davies been out?
Before Saturday’s trip to Cologne, Bayern chief Nagelsmann told reporters as he offered the latest information about Davies: inflammation of the heart muscle.
“He has stopped training so far, so he will not be available to us in the coming weeks.
“According to the ultrasound, this myocarditis is not very dramatic, but rather signs of inflammation.” Nevertheless, he needs to heal and it will undoubtedly take some time. “
According to the report, referring to the player’s agent, his absence will be at least four weeks.
Alphons Davies agent Nick Househ told me he spoke to Davies after magnetic resonance imaging showed that Davies had a “mild” case of myocarditis.
Davies, who received a booster vaccine against Covid-19 in December, is feeling well, Huoseh said.
Davies weaned for at least 4 weeks.
Huoseh: “His biggest concern is boredom.”

Matches that Alphonso Davies misses
After we were forced to extend the spell on the siding, it remains to be seen when Davies will be cleared so that he can return to action.
The match will definitely take place on January 15 against FC Kolín, while Bayern should visit Herth Berlin on January 23.
An important home date with RB Leipzig will take place on February 5, after which the team will head to Bochum a week later.
Nagelsmann’s team will return to the Champions League on February 16, with the first round of the final with Red Bull Salzburg taking them to Austria, and Davies may be watching all these trips from a distance.
However, further medical examinations will be carried out in Munich, which will make it possible to set a more precise timetable for the recovery of the buccaneer defender.

Is Davies missing the World Cup qualifiers in Canada?
At the end of January, Canada has an important series of World Cup qualifiers that could prepare it for qualifying for the first men’s World Cup since 1986. If Davies had to miss these matches, it would be a serious blow to Canada’s hopes of advancement.
The Canadian men’s team is currently in first place in the regional qualifiers, with six matches to go. Three of them will be played in January and February: in Honduras (January 27), vs. USA (January 30) and El Salvador (February 2). The first three teams get automatic beds in Qatar 2022.
Six points or more of the nine points available in these three matches would allow Canada to book a ticket to Qatar 2022.
