Davies enjoyed another top year with Bayern Munich. He played a key role over the course of the 2020-21 season as Bayern won yet another Bundesliga title, Davies’ third with the German giants. With the Canada men’s national team, no player played more matches in the 2021 rounds of the World Cup qualifiers for Qatar than Davies.
