"Alphonso Davies faces a period on the sidelines at FC Bayern.

"The 20-year-old suffered an LCL tear to his left ankle in Canada’s build-up to the Gold Cup. Davies has now returned to Munich for rehab.

"The injury will be managed without invasive treatment."

Bayern Munich hasn’t confirmed a specific date for Davies’ return, but his absence period will take four to six weeks, and he may miss the beginning of the next season, although he doesn’t need surgery.

Bayern Munich is going to start the next season with Julian Nagelsmann, who is going to experience his first season as the Bundesliga Champions’ manager, and his first match will be a friendly game against Koln on July 17. The new manager will be hoping to have the team’s young talent back as soon as possible because he has been one of the brightest talents in European football.
