Bayern Munich continued to train during the COVID-19 lockdown on Tuesday before winger Alphonso Davies spoke about his ambition with the German giants, games behind closed doors and the path from refugee to soccer star.
Bayern signed the then 17-year-old winger Davies from Major League Soccer (MLS) side Vancouver Whitecaps in 2018 in a record deal for a transfer from the North American top-flight.
In a video released by his club, Davies, who was born in Ghana, described the “very emotional roller coaster” from being a refugee to starting a new life in Canada, giving him “the opportunity to be whatever I want to be.”
Davies’ first contract with Bayern was to run until June 2023. Last week, it was extended until 2025.
The German league is expected to restart some time next month with games played without spectators, though an exact date will likely be decided next week at a government meeting.
Bayern are four points clear at the top of the table and in the hunt for a record-extending eighth straight league crown.
