Bayern Munich’s Julian Nagelsmann confident with Alphonso Davies’ development, despite setbacks

Davies had a slump in the 2020/21 season, but it looks as though the Canadian is back to his best this season and Nagelsmann couldn’t be happier with his development.

Alphonso Davies had an exceptional rookie season in the Bundesliga, but had some problems last season. The Canadian defender’s value even dropped despite his age but it appears as though Davies has been more consistent this season.

At just 21-years-old, the Canadian has already won everything there is to win in club football. He is now on his way to Canada, where he is aiming to bring his nation to their second-ever World Cup appearance. Despite his early success, he is learning that you need to consistently prove yourself to stay at the top.

“Phonzie is developing well. You have to admit to a player his age that you have fluctuations. And he will certainly have them this year as well,” stated Nagelsmann on Davies [kicker].

Nagelsmann is not worried about fluctuations because such things are inevitable. What matters is that Davies is constantly developing and improving his game. At just 21-years-old, Davies is already one of the best left-backs in the world and should be a major part of Bayern’s plans in the coming years.

Bayern Munich struck gold when they signed the Canadian from the Vancouver Whitecaps of the MLS. Alphonso Davies is clearly happy to play at Bayern and sees a future at the club. Davies is certain to be the star of our defense for many years to come.
