Alphonso Davies’ progress and performance at Bayern Munich has been singled out for praise by club president Herber Hainer.

Bayern Munich has had an amazing season so far, even by its own exceptionally high standards.

Completing the league and cup domestic double, and one of the favorites to lift the Champions League.

You would be hard picked to pick just one standout player.

Do you pick Robert Lewandowski for his unbelievable goal tally?

What about Thomas Muller for his assists record?

The list could go on. However, as far as club president Herber Hainer is concerned one player, in particular, has stood out.

Hainer does not sight goals or assists or anyone statistic in his choice for praise. As far as he is concerned witnessing the development of this young talent has brought so much joy to himself and the club he has to single Alphonso Davies out.

Speaking fcbayern.com he said:

“It’s hard to single out one person in this great team, they were all sensational.”

“But the development of Alphonso Davies has given me a lot of pleasure.”

“He’s been a real hit: he is absolutely top-class on the pitch and with his young, fresh manner, he is well on the way to becoming a popular figure.”

“The boy makes us very happy.”
