VIDEO: Davies delivers double in final Whitecaps game before joining Bayern Munich – football news

Alphonso Davies gave Vancouver Whitecaps fans something to remember him by – and something for Bayern Munich to salivate over.

The teenage Canada international suited up for the final time for the Whitecaps on Sunday as the Canadian side closed out their 2018 MLS campaign at home against Cascadia rivals the Portland Timbers.

Davies has already agreed to a move to join the Bundesliga champions this winter for an initial fee of $13 million (£10m/€11m), an MLS record that could eventually rise to $19m.

In his MLS finale, and just days ahead of his 18th birthday, the teenager showed the skill that made him such a valued commodity.

With the game scoreless in the 28th minute, Davies picked up the ball around the midfield line and went on an impressive run through the Portland half, beating one defender and then turning Timbers defender Bill Tuiloma the wrong way before launching a rocket from the edge of the area to give the Whitecaps a 1-0 lead.

Things got even better for Davies just three minutes later.

In the 31st minute, a cross in the area was not well dealt with by Marco Farfan, who brought it down and did not see Davies approaching from behind.

Davies picked the defender’s pocket, and Tuiloma could not get over in time to stop the Whitecaps star from beating Jeff Attinella for the second time on the day.

While a hat trick would have been an even sweeter way to go out, Davies will just have to settle for the brace and the winner, as the Whitecaps held on for a 2-1 victory.

The goals brought Davies’ total on the season to eight, to go along with nine assists in 31 MLS games for the teenager in his third campaign for the Whitecaps.

He will now head over to Germany, where he will join Bayern Munich in January, though head coach Niko Kovac had previously mentioned the possibility of Davies training with the club earlier.

With Davies turning 18 on November 2, and the Whitecaps season finished, the teenager may be in Germany sooner rather than later.

Ibrahimovic sees ‘bright future’ for Bayern-bound Davies – football news

Zlatan Ibrahimovic sees a bright future ahead for Bayern Munich-bound teenager Alphonso Davies, but advised the winger to make sure he does not show “too much respect” to the big stars.

The 17-year-old agreed to move to Germany after the Bavarian side reached a £10 million ($13.5m) deal with Vancouver Whitecaps that has been tipped as a “bargain” by former Canada coach Octavio Zambrano.

Davies has already made 78 first-team appearances for the Whitecaps but will join his new team-mates in January after the MLS season comes to an end.

And, after coming up against the Ghanaian-born attacker during LA Galaxy’s 3-0 win over the Canadians, Ibrahimovic is convinced he will fit in well at a top club like Bayern.

“If he goes to Bayern, he must be a good player, because the club does not bring bad young footballers,” Ibrahimovic told reporters after the game. “At a club like Bayern, he will learn a lot, if they have seen something in him, then something big.

“I just hope he’s ready when he goes to Bayern, because when he gets there he’ll be lonely and it will be competitive, so he has to be mentally strong.

“If he sees the big players, he should not show too much respect. You go there for one reason: You’re part of the team. It’s up to him to do the rest. I see a bright future!”

The Swedish striker is not the only one to highlight the Canada international’s quality, as Bayern boss Niko Kovac is well aware of what is coming his way in January.

“He’s very young, and he’s very talented. Lots of clubs want to have him,” he said recently. “He’s a young player, and young players, when they are as good as him, are very expensive because a lot of clubs are interested in him – and I’m sure because a lot of clubs are interested in him the price might go up.

“He’s very fast, he’s very talented, he’s very good. I believe he has a very big future if he gets the right training.”
