Soccer: Does Alphonso Davies Have Cancer?
Alphonso Davies doesn’t have cancer.
Nonetheless, doctors diagnosed him with mild myocarditis recently. The news broke out today, some hours ago. Due to his medical condition, he will miss his return to the Bayern Munich side after his previous COVID-19 battle.
Bayern’s manager Julian Nagelsmann, in Friday’s pre-match news conference, confirmed the situation saying that the medical experts detected the problem in the follow-up examination that all players who previously contracted the coronavirus undergo.
Davies had a positive COVID-19 test last week, causing him to remain in home isolation.
However, the amount of time for which he won’t be training is uncertain at the moment. Likewise, he won’t be available in the coming weeks. Reportedly, the ultrasound showed inflammation in the heart muscles, which isn’t dramatic.
Alphonso will probably miss the matches against Koln on 15 January 2022 and Hertha Berlin on 23. If the recovery takes longer, there is also a possibility of him missing the clash with RB Leipzig on 5 February. Further, his participation in Canada’s World Cup qualifiers remains in doubt.
