Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: “Alphonso has developed very well at FC Bayern and has earned this contract extension with his impressive performances.
“We are happy that he will remain with FC Bayern in the long term. He delights our fans not only with the way he plays, but also with the way he is off the pitch.”
Davies told ESPN that Bayern are capable of winning the Champions League once football restarts after the coronavirus pandemic.
