Myocarditis has kept Alphonso Davies out of action since January. 

The Canadian star is back on the training ground. This is a huge step forward for Davies, who has been battling myocarditis since he contracted COVID-19.

Alphonso Davies could return to train with Bayern Munich before the quarter-finals of the Champions League early next month, according to the club’s head coach, Julian Nagelsmann.

Bayern Munich released a video of him on the training ground. Coach Julian Nagelsmann has confirmed that the 21-year-old will not play in a Champions League match on Wednesday against Benfica.

“The best case scenario for Phonzy is that his heart muscle inflammation is gone. However, if everything goes very, very well, he will miss three, maybe four weeks, because he is only allowed to undertake very moderate efforts the first week,” Nagelsmann said.

“Next week on Friday we have to do another MRI scan to check how he’s doing. The fluid from the pericardium is gone, everything looks good. We’re pleased and very happy with how it’s turned out and hope he finds his feet again quickly.”
