Alphonso Davies is unhappy with his position at Bayern: "I'm stuck there"

Alphonso Davies from FC Bayern has openly expressed dissatisfaction with his position with the German record champions. The Canadian is a regular at FCB on the left side of defense and has long been considered one of the best players in the world in this position. But Davies would like to act much more offensively.

Speaking on the Say Less podcast, the 22-year-old said: “I keep hoping for my chance to play up front. I’m waiting for it: ‘Phonzy, come on left winger!’ I would jump in the air.”

Davies joined FC Bayern in winter 2019 as a left winger for a fee of 14 million euros from the Vancouver Whitecaps. He was moved back by the then coach Niko Kovac during an injury break by David Alabas and developed splendidly there.

Davies explained: “The funny thing is I started as a left winger. Left, right – but I prefer left. I was signed as Robben’s back-up at the time. They put me at left-back when David had a hamstring injury I thought it was a temporary solution – I can ask him stuff, learn a new position. And now, three, four years later, I’m stuck.”

Davies is under contract with FC Bayern until 2025. The talks about an early extension have come to a standstill, and his advisor has recently been critical of FCB several times.

Davies may actually get more opportunities to present himself as a left winger in the coming season: Raphaël Guerreiro (BVB) is another left-back coming to Säbener Straße.
