Alphonso Davies is known for his acceleration and top speed, and those skills have helped established himself as Bayern Munich’s first-choice left back. His deficiencies in positioning (which he seems to be improving game after game) are made up by his ability to catch up with and overtake attackers using his supernatural speed.

He showed the football world this capability once again during Bayern Munich’s title-clinching win against Werder Bremen last Tuesday. The Canadian youngster clocked in at staggering 36.51 km/h, breaking BVB’s Achraf Hakimi’s record of 36.48 km/h set earlier this season.

This ability, a part of his strength, has helped Davies become one of the best up-and-coming players in European football, and with the help of his veteran teammates, the sky is the limit for him. We may already be looking at the best left-back in the entire world, and the kid is only 19 years old.
