Alphonso Davies diagnosed with mild myocarditis.
Alphonso Davies, a Bayern Munich defender, has been put on the sidelines after the club discovered evidence of inflammation in his heart muscle.
After contracting Covid-19 on December 17, the 21-year-old Canadian hasn’t played in a match since.
After Davies returned to training, Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann noticed a moderate symptom of myocarditis.
Having an inflammation of the heart muscle, known as myocarditis, can impair the heart’s ability to pump blood and can cause irregular heartbeats.
Since joining Bayern Munich from Vancouver Whitecaps in 2018, Davies has appeared in 107 games, helping the club win three Bundesliga titles and the Champions League in 2020.
