With the summer tournaments done and dusted, focus for clubs Europe-wide turns to pre-season, and Bayern Munich have already been hit with a huge blow.
One of their standout players of the last couple of seasons, Alphonso Davies, is in danger of missing the start of the new Bundesliga campaign after tearing his ankle ligaments according to Get German Football News.
The player will surely become as integral a part of Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern as he was for Hansi Flick’s.
It’s not clear how long he will be sidelined for, however, meaning that Nagelsmann has to contend with the possibility of replacing him in the short-term.
The injury was sustained while Davies was on international duty with Canada, in preparation for the Gold Cup.
He will undergo his rehabilitation in Munich, with the club hoping that he’ll be back soonest given that he plays a vital role in the way in which Bayern attack their opponents.
