Alphonso Davies gives positive news to Bayern Munich on the injury front.

There is going to be no international break until April. The festive period is set to be hectic for clubs across Europe since there will be a game every three days. Moreover, players are already overworked due to the congested schedule at the start of the season. There are injury concerns at all top clubs that have depth in the squad. Bayern Munich is no different as they have numerous players on the sidelines.

Alphonso Davies is one of the few players at Sabner Strasse that has not been training with the first team for weeks. The Canadian winger suffered a serious injury during the game against Eintracht Frankfurt in October. He came off the pitch early in this game at Allianz Arena.

Davies is expected to be out for eight weeks, missing out on games until the start of 2021. However, he continues to make steady progress in his rehabilitation. The Canadian winger has now started light training on the grass this week. Bayern confirmed that Davies would be training individually for the next few days.

Since he is back on the pitch so soon, it bodes well for his early return to the action. As of now, Die Roten is also without Lucas Hernandez, who has been thriving in the left-back position this week. The French defender suffered a minor injury against Werder Bremen last Saturday.

Davies enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in an unlikely position. He went from strength to strength in the left-back position. The teenager ended up becoming an important part of the treble-winning team, delivering consistent performance throughout the year. His performances against Chelsea and Barcelona in the Champions League were particularly impressive.

Since it was a short turnaround between last and new season, Flick has decided to manage the workload of Davies. He decided to ease him into the first team while giving much-needed playing time to Hernandez. The Frenchman has started the season well after struggling with injuries during his debut season.

As it was looking evident that Davies was getting back to his best, he suffered a big injury setback. Die Roten will have to be careful with his rehabilitation as there is no point in rushing him back. Bringing him back in the first team quickly may lead to a relapse in the injury.

Davies was unfortunate to miss out on the Golden Boy Award last weekend. The Canadian full-back finished third in the list, while Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland won the award. Considering the rate at which Davies has progressed, he will be challenging for bigger awards in the future. Die Roten will be hoping that he soon returns from injury and get backs to his best form.
