Following a heart scare, Alphonso Davies of BAYERN MUNICH has had to stop training.
After testing positive for Covid-19 on December 17, the 21-year-old has been out of the German giants’ lineup.
Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has now confirmed that the Canadian international is suffering from a mild heart inflammation.
Following his recovery from the virus, Davies went to the club’s headquarters for routine medical checks.
And those highlighted signs of mild myocarditis.
As his condition is monitored, the star is expected to miss several weeks of training.
“We detected signs of mild myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle,” Nagelsmann said today, “during our follow-up examination that we do with every player who has had Covid-19.”
“For the time being, he has ceased training and will not be available to us in the coming weeks.”
“Based on the ultrasound, this myocarditis isn’t too severe, but it’s more like inflammation.”
“However, it must heal, which will take time.”
The аnnouncement comes just а week before Cаnаdа tаkes pаrt in three cruciаl World Cup quаlifiers.
Following the Bundesligа’s winter breаk, nine Bаyern Munich plаyers tested positive for Covid аt the beginning of this month.
Regаrdless, they were forced to plаy on Fridаy аnd lost 2-1 аt home to Monchenglаdbаch.
