Alphonso Davies Picks His Top Five Full-Backs in World Football

Alphonso Davies Picks His Top Five Full-Backs in World Football

Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies has picked his top five full-backs in world football today.

The Canadian's choices had a very youthful flavour to them, with Davies admitting his admiration for Inter Milan new boy Achraf Hakimi, his Bayern colleague Benjamin Pavard, Liverpool assist machine Trent Alexander-Arnold and Arsenal's Bukayo Saka.

He also selected himself, which is probably a fair call given his form for the Bundesliga champions.

"Hakimi is one of them," Davies told 90min.

"I really like how Benji [Pavard] plays, scoring goals and getting assists, so those two. Trent Alexander-Arnold definitely and I really like [Bukayo] Saka from Arsenal. He's a really good player."

Saving the best until last, Davies added: "And me too!"

The Vancouver Whitecaps youth product was previously a winger but has been successfully converted into a left-back - a position he expects to remain in for the foreseeable future.

"Right now, definitely left-back," Davies replied when asked what position he sees himself playing going forward.

The 19-year old made 29 Bundesliga appearances last term, scoring three times and assisting four as he established himself as first-choice on the left side of a title-winning backline.

But even he was surprised to learn he clocked a ridiculous 35.51km/h (22.69 mph) as Bayern sealed an eighth consecutive title with a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen last month.

It took him by surprise and Davies produce a priceless reaction when told of his new Bundesliga record top speed.
