Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle which can reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood and can cause rapid or irregular heart rhythms.” “This myocarditis isn’t too dramatic based on the ultrasound, but more simply signs of inflammation. Nevertheless, it needs to heal, and that will no doubt take some time,” said Nagelsmann.

Nine Bayern players tested positive at the start of January after time away following the Bundesliga’s winter break. Davies has made 107 appearances for Bayern since signing from Vancouver Whitecaps in 2018, helping them win three Bundesliga titles and the Champions League in 2020.
