BERLIN, Germany, March 27 – Canadian winger Alphonso Davies insists there are no issues with his heart as he hopes to bring his Bayern Munich back next month after recovering from Covid.
The 21-year-old has been sidelined since December after being diagnosed with myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart, after testing positive for coronavirus in January.
“I’m happy to be back. Rehab is going well so far,” Davies told Bayern’s website.
“I have no problems with my muscles and my heart, but I’m not 100% yet!
“I’m just happy to be able to train again. I am ready to work.
Bayern head coach Julian Nagelsmann hopes Davies will be available for his Champions League quarter-final second leg at home to Villarreal on April 12.
The first leg will take place in Spain on April 5.
“I give everything. I work closely with the medical department and rehabilitation staff,” Davies added.
“And I train very, very hard with and without the ball.”
The ambitious Canadian says his goals are to ‘win’ both the Bundesliga, where Bayern are six points clear with seven games to play, and the Champions League this season.
However, he admits to having found the “last four to eight weeks” “very boring and mentally difficult”.
He says he spent time “making a lot of music” in a studio, spending time with his family and visiting his girlfriend Jordyn Huitema, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain.
“And if not: wait, wait, wait…”
