Alphonso Davies to be out for weeks

Alphonso Davies will be out of action for weeks due to a heart issue.
Bayern München will have to manage without Alphonso Davies in the next few weeks, head coach Julian Nagelsmann revealed at a press conference today.

"Yesterday, during our follow-up examination that we do with ever player that has had Covid-19, we detected signs of mild myocarditis, i.e. an inflammation of the heart muscle," said Nagelsmann.

"He has stopped training for now, so he won't be available to us for the next weeks."

Nagelsmann also provided an update on the other players, who had COVID.

"None of them are 100 percent fit. One or two had symptoms as well. Upamecano, Tanguy [Nianzou], Leroy [Sané], Omar [Richards] and 'Manu' [Neuer] are back in the squad, but apart from 'Manu', none of them are ready to start or play a reasonable amount of minutes."

Corentin Tolisso is available again, but Lucas Hernandez, Kingsley Coman, Leon Goretzka and Josip Stanisic remain out.

Bayern will also be without Bouna Sarr and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who are playing at the Africa Cup of Nations.
