Alphonso Davies was a major ingredient in Bayern Munich’s treble winning campaign last season. The Canadian international picked up a few awards for himself along the way, including a spot in the FIFA FIFPro World XI last week along with Robert Lewandowski and Joshua Kimmich.

Although, while talking to Bundesliga.com, Davies mentioned that he is not yet at the top of his game and that there’s still a lot more for him to work on. He said, “It means a lot. Obviously from a personal standpoint, for myself there are attributes of my game that I can fix. There are other left-backs in the world that are better than me at some attributes but being able to consider myself as one of the best left-backs is amazing.”

Getting guidance from veterans in the squad is really important for young players, especially the ones who are at the beginning of their career. When it comes to Davies, he gets to learn from the best player and the best goalkeeper in the world and that must be a really incredible experience.

”I’m learning from these two experienced players,” said Davies. “Lewandowski is the best player in the world right now. It’s amazing to learn from him, getting feedback from him. Manuel Neuer, is a top keeper. You can’t take anything away from these guys. I just soak everything in and learn from them.”

Davies spent more than six weeks sidelined after picking up an ankle injury against Eintracht Frankfurt. Ever since his return to the squad earlier this month, he has been featured in the starting line-up of all the three matches except the mid-week game against Wolfsburg.
