An ultrasound that was taken as part of the club’s post-COVID-19, return-to-action protocols revealed Davies’ heart inflammation, which Bayern manager has stated will keep the 21-year-old out of training for 'weeks' at minimum.

“Yesterday, during our follow-up examination that we do with every player that has had COVID-19, we detected signs of mild myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

“He has stopped training for now, so he won’t be available to us for the next weeks.

“This myocarditis isn’t too dramatic based on the ultrasound, but more simply signs of an inflammation. Nevertheless, it needs to heal and that will no doubt take some time.” said Nagelsmann on Davies' situation.

The impressive 21 year old Davies has been also been in fine form this season, already racking up five assists in 21 appearances for the Bundesliga Champions.
