The Canadian international will be out of action for at least a couple of weeks after being diagnosed with myocarditis. This has been detected during the medical examination after his return from the COVID-19 quarantine and treatment. The doctors described the heart inflammation as “mild” and nothing to be concerned about, however the recovery process needs to be completed in order for him to perform at his full potential. The recovery will take a couple of weeks.

Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle (myocardium). The inflammation can reduce the heart’s ability to beat and can cause rapid or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

Last week, Davies tested positive and was back in training two days ago, but the player will now stop training until further notice due to the recent development in his condition.

This would keep Alphonso out of Canada’s next three World Cup qualifying matches in January and February, including a test game against the United States on the 30th of Jan. Canada leads in the CONCACAF region as it tries to reach its first World Cup since 1986.

Bayern is the current leader in the Bundesliga table and will play this weekend against F.C. Cologne.
