Bayern München coach Julian Nagelsmann has sung the praises of Alphonso Davies, telling Kicker that the Canadian international is ‘probably already’ one of the best left-backs in the world at the age of 21.

“‘Phonzie’ is developing very well,” said Nagelsmann and continued:

“You have to allow a player in his age to have fluctuations in his performance levels. This will certainly be the case for him this year as well.

“He has the physical prerequisites to be one of the best left-backs. He probably already is. There aren’t that many at his level in his position.”

Davies has made 15 appearances this season with five assists to his name.
