Heart muscle inflammation: FC Bayern without Alphonso Davies for weeks
Bad news for FC Bayern: During a routine check-up, Alphonso Davies was diagnosed with mild myocarditis.
FC Bayern will have to do without left-back Alphonso Davies in the coming weeks. Like coach Julian Nagelsmann at the press conference before the Bundesliga away game at 1. FC Köln (Saturday, 3:30 p.m in the LIVE TICKER) announced that the Canadian was diagnosed with a mild myocarditis during a follow-up examination after his corona infection.
“He’s out of training for the time being. He won’t be available, not even for the next few weeks,” said Nagelsmann. However, it is not certain that there is a connection between COVID and myocarditis. “The probability is there, but it’s not 100% clear. But that’s not the deciding factor either,” he said.
Nagelsmann on Davies: “It will take a while”
According to the findings, there is no reason for concern. “This myocarditis is not so dramatic from the ultrasound, but rather it is a sign of myocarditis. Nevertheless, it has to heal and that will definitely take a certain amount of time,” added Nagelsmann.
After the Munich team recently had a number of corona cases to complain about, the situation before the game in Cologne eased only slightly. “No one is 100 percent fit yet. One or the other had symptoms. Upa, Tanguy, Leroy, Omar, Manu are back in the squad, but apart from Manu they are not that far from the start or can play longer,” said Nagelsmann. Corentin Tolisso is also back, Kingsley Coman is to be rebuilt after his muscle injury.
