The left-back of Bayern Munich, Canadian international Alfonso Davis, suffered a ligament injury to his right ankle that will keep him out of action for a period of 6-8 weeks.
Davis, one of the most prominent players of the Bavarian team, was injured recently, two minutes after the start of his team's match against Eintracht Frankfurt (5 - zero) in the domestic league, and was unable to complete it.
"Alfonso suffers from an ankle ligament injury," coach Hanzi Flick said. "One of the ligaments is torn completely and the other partially. We estimate that he will be out of action for 6 to 8 weeks."
"The injury of Davis is a heavy blow, and when a player of this type is absent, it is painful," the French press agency quoted the Bavarian coach as saying.
Davis was playing his first major match since his participation against Dior in the German Cup competition on October 15th, and he played instead of Frenchman Luca Hernandez in the matches against Armenia Bielefeld locally and against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
