he was the first Canadian to win the men’s UEFA Champions League Final and the FIFA Club World Cup Final... he was the second Canadian to win both the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal (German Cup), notably the first to do so in multiple seasons... in Germany with FC Bayern München, a FIFA Club World Cup winner (2020), a UEFA Champions League winner (2019-20), a UEFA Super Cup winner (2020), a three-time Bundesliga winner (2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21), a two-time DFB-Pokal winner (2018-19, 2019-20), and a two-time DFL-SuperCup winner (2020, 2021)...

said Davies in June 2017, “I am overwhelmed and I am glad I can make my parents proud by becoming a Canadian citizen”... said in 2017, “put your head down and keep fighting, that’s my motto”...

said Davies in 2018 after joining FC Bayern München, “as a kid, I always dreamed of a moment like this. Now that the dream has come true, the work continues as always. I have to keep pushing, keep striving, and also keep being me on the field. Ever since I joined the 'Caps when I was 14, they molded me throughout the years into the pro that I've become. Thanks to the fans for supporting me, I really enjoy playing in front of them in Vancouver"... said John Herdman in 2018, “Alphonso Davies is someone to whom all our young players can aspire, not only the way he holds himself in the community off the field, but also how he lights up and brings that personality on the pitch. Canadians like to see that humility and hard work with that special piece of x-factor. It resonates with people in Canada because they see a kid that they helped on a journey and they can be part of that journey now”... wrote MLS in 2018, Davies has “soft, quick feet, head on a pivot, technique that’s built for go not show, the first touch of a pillow and courage to make a game-changing play”... said Gene Vazzoler in 2018, “I dreamed of having his speed. He just runs away from people. He is the real thing. He has a head on his shoulder, speaks well, he’s humble... I am very much impressed”...

said Davies in 2020 after becoming a Supporter of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, “I want to use my platform for cause for which I care. As a former refugee, I am very grateful for the help my family received and the opportunities this opened up for men and where it has brought me”... as idolized in the 2020 lyrics for the song AD19 by by Moto X Mouraine X Namso, “I’m trying to ball like Phonzie, number 19, and they say he’s only 19 living our dreams”...

said Davies in 2020 after winning the Lou Marsh Trophy, “this year has been a roller coaster and I’m very happy to be able to share the Lou Marsh with another deserving winner, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. It hasn’t been an easy year for many Canadians and we hope we were able to bring some happiness to you with our accomplishments this year”...
