Bayern said on January 5 that the 21-year-old from Edmonton had joined a long list of players who tested positive for COVID, adding Davies was well and isolating himself at home.
Davies is train back a week laterbut his return was stalled when Bayern reported on January 14 that tests showed the Canadian was suffering from signs of myocarditis. Myocarditis According to experts, is a mild, temporary condition in the vast majority of cases.
On Thursday, Nagelsmann said Davies continues to recover but there is no timeline for his return to action.
“Alphonso Davies is fine. I spoke to him last week,” Nagelsmann said through an interpreter. “Of course he was a bit bored because he wasn’t allowed to do anything. All in all, that’s not good for a high-performance athlete.
“But that is the current situation and he has to get through it and so do we. He needs to heal 100%. And after four weeks, ie soon, he will undergo another examination and then we will start with further steps, which in the best case will lead to an increase in physical stress.
“But of course it is possible that he is not ready. We’ll see, when we get the test results, the diagnosis. “
The topic of Davies’ health was first asked during coach Julian Nagelsmann’s press conference ahead of Saturday’s home game against RB Leipzig, Nagelsmann’s former team.
Davies’ myocarditis was discovered during the follow-up check that all players with COVID-19 had to undergo.
Davies was forced to watch from afar as Canada continued its march to Qatar 2022 with World Cup qualifying victories over Honduras, the US and El Salvador. He did it in style, streaming live on Twitch as he watched some of his own memorable goal celebrations.
Alphonso Davies ‘back to Edmonton for World Cup qualifiers’ gives people confidence’
The Canadian men, who topped the CONCACAF qualifying standings 7-0-4, finish qualifying with three games next month: in Costa Rica on March 23, at home against Jamaica on March 26 and in Panama on March 29.
After Wednesday’s 2-0 win in El Salvador, they are now just one win away from Qatar 2022.
It’s unclear if Davies, who has 35 caps for Canada with 10 goals and 15 assists, can be involved in those.
The top three teams in the CONCACAF eight-team circle will represent North, Central America and the Caribbean at Qatar 2022. The fourth-placed team will meet an Oceania country in an intercontinental playoff to see who joins them.
Regarded as one of the best left-backs in the world thanks to his pace and sophisticated attacking play, Davies plays more in an attacking position for Canada.
