He was back in the Starting XI on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt but left after just three minutes of Bayern’s 5-0 blowout win.

Bayern boss Hansi Flick was tasked with delivering the bad news after Davies needed help to get off the Allianz Arena pitch, reporting that the soon-to-be 20-year-old Canadian damaged ankle ligaments and will miss up to two months.

Davies have five goals and eight assists in 17 caps for Canada, who begins World Cup qualifying in March.
