The Canadian youngster sees no reason Hansi Flick cannot take the Bavarians to the crown, while also praising football in his native nation.

While Hansi Flick’s side have endured a tough battle so far in their bid to win an eighth successive Bundesliga name, they have enjoyed better fortunes in Europe.

Six wins in six saw Bayern qualify for the last 16 with a perfect record, the only side in the entire competition to do so, while their first knockout match ended in a resounding 3-0 win in west London at the expense of Chelsea.

The Covid-19 outbreak led to the second leg to be postponed using Die Roten to the verge of waltzing into the quarters, and Davies sees no reason why they should not struggle through to the decisive stages and reclaim a title they last lifted in 2013.

“I feel that with all the caliber have we can win the Champions League,” that the 19-year-old Canada international told ESPN.

I did exactly what the coaches asked me to do, defended well, assaulted nicely.

“Clearly it is not going to be easy. There are still a lot of good opponents facing us that we have to get past. Each and every day we have that at the back of our heads, that this season could be the year that we win the Champions League again.

“My favorite part about [Flick] is that he allows us to play, let’s be imaginative. He implements his training tactics, just how he wants us to perform, but at the end of the afternoon, soccer is free-flowing. He merely wants us to win games and enjoy playing with our football.”

Born in Ghana into Liberian parents, Davies was brought up in Canada and represented the nation at youth degree before receiving his citizenship in 2017, which made him eligible for the senior national team.

He boasts 17 caps for the nation and insists that, despite its reputation as a footballing backwater, there is not any lack of talent.

“Yeah, I always feel as though Canada have quality footballers and with us playing so highly in Europe it opens the eyes of other teams to examine our players.

“Even though it snows there [in Canada], even though we play baseball, we still play football. We’re good at it.”
