Alphonso Davies destapó this past Tuesday in Stamford Bridge like one of the sides of the moment. The jovencísimo Canadian of so alone 19 years completed a performance soberbia in the victory of the muniqueses by 0-3 in front of Chelsea. The carrilero was flawless in defence and did not leave to shine to Mount, one of the perlas of the londinenses. But where for real stood out the left-handed was in attack and was imparable all night.

It went up one and again by this left side leaving backwards rival as if they were cones in a training. It gave 62 you have a good time of 68 that gave in total, delivered 35 passes in contrary field, recovered eight times the ball and put him in tray the goal to Robert Lewandowski, that only had to push it. Saving the distances, in a lot of things remembered to the Gareth Bleat​ of the Tottenham, when the Welsh still was lateral and exhibited , for example, in Milan, with a partidazo for the memory.

Davies Already has settled in the left-handed lane of the Bayern, where carries playing almost all the campaign ininterrumpidamente. It is a fixed for Hans-Dieter Flick, that since it arrived to substitute to Niko Kovac has given him the chevrons to the Canadian, that is not disappointing. Up to now it was playing well, but the level that exhibited in London are greater words and plant him directly in the elite of the European football.

The Bayern was the smartest of the class when in 2018 decided to pay 11,5 million euros to the Vancouver Whitecaps of the MLS by a Canadian stranger of 17 years. By then, Alphonso played in the centre of the field, but in Munich saw in him a carrilero with an incredible potential that already is exploding. Technician, very powerful, with good driving and with every time better defensive notions, Davies is called to be one of the best left-handed sides of the future and also of the present.

The Bavarians spent 80 million euros in Lucas Hernández this summer. The ex of the Athletic of Madrid arrived to reinforce the centre of the defence, but also the left lane, where also had shined in Madrid and in France. The French lesionó of gravity in October, but does several weeks that returned and has found with that the Canadian has removed him his place. Flick Has given him the titularity and has happened to Praise to the centre of the defence, by what the most expensive signing of the history of the German team has remained without place.

The Barça looked for lateral, but did not see to come to Davies

Although it could say the same of the rest of big clubs Europeans, to the FC Barcelona can him attribute especially that it have not known to track the talent of a player like Davies. The Barcelona carry several years looking for an acting left-handed side and have not left to fail in his contractings. Mathieu and Lucas Digne in his day no cuajaron, the same that it is not working, at least for now, Junior Firpo. The ex of the Betis, of 23 years, arrived by 18 fixed millions and 12 in variables and is not giving the size. While, in Munich, a Canadian of origin ghanés, of four years less, exhibits in the Champions. The next time the technical office barcelonista will have to be more attentive to the young talents of any part of the world.
