Davies flew back to Munich from the tournament in the United States on Friday after he was hurt in training ahead of Canada’s opening game.
Bayern said the club “must do without Alphonso Davies until further notice” because of what it said was a torn anterior ligament in his left ankle. The 20-year-old is recovering in Munich and the club doesn’t expect he will need surgical intervention.
