A news that complicates the Bavarian team today. It was confirmed that Alphonso Davis suffer a “slight inflammation of the heart muscle” , also called myocarditis, probably caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19). Given this, Julian Nagelsmann reported that the Canadian will be out for several weeks with the Bayern Munich.
Doctors do not have scientific certainties about the origin of this pathology of the 21-year-old left side, “but the probability that it comes from the coronavirus is great”, Nagelsmann acknowledged at the press conference prior to tomorrow’s game against Cologne.
Likewise, the technician confirmed that Davies “He will be absent for a time, still undetermined. It’s not that dramatic, but it has to heal, and that will take some time.”
Davies was among Bayern’s numerous coronavirus casualties for the last game against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Leroy Sané, Dayot Upamecano, Omar Richards, Manuel Neuer and Tanguy Nianzou are already training, but “they continue to recover”, according to the technician.
However Nagelsmann said that, with the exception of Neuer, none of them can be expected to play 90 minutes yet. “In a goalkeeper the physical demand is different than in a field player. We hope he doesn’t get shots on goal all the time and doesn’t have to make 50 saves.” Nagelsmann explained the case of the goalkeeper of the German national team.
On the other hand, Kingsley Coman will remain low due to a muscle injury prior to his coronavirus infection. It should be noted that, of the nine positive players in Covid-19 last week, only Lucas Hernandez still has not recovered.
