Julian Nagelsmann has commented again on Alphonso Davies’ heart muscle inflammation. The FC Bayern coach explained that the left-back will not be available for at least a month.
“It can go quite quickly, but it’s at least four weeks – and everything is possible indefinitely,” Nagelsmann said on Sky before the match in Munich at 1. FC Köln. This is anything but good news.
The 21-year-old Canadian is otherwise fine, explains Nagelsmann: “If you have something like this, you usually don’t notice it. You only notice that you are not 100 percent when you move. After such an infection as a player you project That’s not on your heart, but you count on the consequences of the infection.”
It’s important now “that we do the examinations carefully and that’s why we made the diagnosis. It’s important that he can heal, but it’s also a shame because Alphonso just came back”.
Nagelsmann: “It is important to gauge the market”
The fact that Bayern need Davies’ qualities in his position and that downtime is unclear is particularly troubling, the 34-year-old said. He has several alternatives to the left-back position like Lucas Hernandez, Nagelsmann continued: “Even if it doesn’t happen at Alphonso’s level.”
“We have important weeks ahead of us in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League, so it’s important to scan the market. I’m a friend of giving young players in particular six months to integrate. we don’t have to sign a player and there is no pressure from my side. We have to improvise a bit, but we are not the only club in Europe,” said Nagelsmann.
