What is Alphonso Davies' story?

Many worldwide consider Alphonso the face of Canadian soccer. Behind his success are many tribulations he had to overcome. He moved to Canada by chance and made a name for himself in a foreign land.

Is Alphonso Davies an African?

The footballer was born in Buduburam, a refugee camp in Ghana. His parents had fled the civil war in Liberia. The family endured many difficulties at the refugee camp, including insecurity, lack of clean water, and insufficient food. Unlike most refugees in the camp who learned to use guns for protection, his family avoided carrying and using them.

Why did Alphonso Davies come to Canada?

Since Alphonso's family needed refuge overseas from Liberia's civil war, a program called resettlement moved them to Edmonton, Alberta, when he was 5. They got him Canadian documents in June of that year, and he began working at a young age to help his mum support his two younger siblings.

Educational background

Alphonso Davies' parents sent him to the Mother Theresa Catholic school, where his Grade 6 teacher & sports coach, Melissa Guzzo, noticed his talent in sports. The boy was gifted in track, basketball, and more sports.

Melissa contacted Tim Adams, the Free Footie founder, who realized that Davies was no ordinary kid when he enrolled him in his organization. Free Footie is a free after-school soccer league for inner-city kids in Elementary grades 3 to 6 who can't afford games registration fees, equipment, or transportation.

Adams called the St. Nicholas Soccer Academy soccer coach, Marco Bossio, to watch the boy play in a tournament, and Marco was also impressed. Alphonso met Chernoh Fahnbulleh (a Canadian immigrant from Liberia) at St. Nicholas in 2008, and they became friends to date.

Career history

At St. Nicholas, Davies began considering playing soccer as a lifetime career. He played for Edmonton Internationals and Edmonton Strikers in an after-school football league for inner-city primary school children.

Alphonso's professional career began when he signed with Whitecaps FC 2 in February 2016. He was 15 years old when he became the youngest player to appear in the United Soccer League (USL) and made history as the first player born in the 2000s to play in the Major League Soccer (MLS).

Davies made his USL debut two months after joining the Whitecaps FC 2 and scored his first professional goal four weeks later. As a result, he set a record by being the league's youngest goals corer ever.

Alphonso was named to the roster on a temporary deal with the Whitecaps for the Canadian Championship in June 2016. He signed a contract with the Whitecaps that would end in a year, with the option of a one-year extension.

The contract made him the league's youngest active player. Alphonso scored his first goal with the senior team during the 2016/17 CONCACAF Champions League. The goal advanced the Whitecaps to the knockout phase.

Davies' strong start in the MLS attracted several European clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool. He was rated among the world's top 60 young soccer stars in 2017 and named to the 2018 MLS All-Star roster for the MLS All-Star Game and the Vancouver Whitecaps Player of the Year.

Alphonso's career highlight was in July 2018 when Bayern Munich signed him. He officially joined the club on January 1, 2019, and debuted against Borussia Monchengladbach on January 12, 2019.

Davies scored his first goal for the club in a six-nil thriller against Mainz 05 on March 17, 2019, and has made multiple appearances for Bayern Munich since then.

Alphonso Davies' position change at Bayern Munich

Alphonso revealed that transitioning to left-back at Bayern Munich was challenging at first. He had to step up after Niklas Süle, and Lucas Hernandez's long-term injuries forced a defensive reshuffle at the Allianz Arena. Regular left-back David Alaba moved to occupy the central position and opened up a space in the starting lineup for Davies to fill.
