Via social network Twitter, Alphonso Davies suggested Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau allow him to go home for a week.
Davies was the first Canadian player to win the Champions League . After the 19-year-old defender took the throne on August 23, the Prime Minister congratulated him on Twitter . “You have made the Canadians out there extremely proud,” he wrote.
Two hours after accepting his greeting, Davies replied, “May I go home for a week,” accompanied by a clasp of hands. However, almost a day later, the Bayern defender has not received a reply.
As a rule, anyone wishing to enter Canada must be tested for nCoV and quarantined for 14 days – exactly the same vacation that Bayern gave each player before the army prepares for the 2020-2021 season. The Bavarian club had exactly a week to check their forces, then entered the opening round of the Bundesliga , which took place on September 12.
Growing up from his hometown club Vancouver Whitecaps, Davies , born in 2000, rapid progress. 15 years old 8 months 15 days, he made his MLS debut . A year later, he became the youngest player in history to score for the Canadian team.
In July 2018, Davies signed a 5-year contract with Bayern, despite receiving the attention of both Barca and Man Utd. Davies transfer fee of more than 10 million – a large number for a 17-year-old player. In November 2018, when he was 18 years old, Davies officially joined Bayern. At the end of January 2019, he made his Bundesliga debut in a 4-1 win over Stuttgart.
The turning point came to Davies in the 2019-2020 season, when midfielders Niklas Sule and Lucas Hernandez were both injured. Coach Niko Kovac pulled David Alaba into the center of the defense, and the left flank where the Austrian defender held was gaping. After that, Alaba himself had to sit out for a month, and Davies continued to kick in since the end of 2019. He continued to be used under Hansi Flick .
