Alphonso Davies is no stranger to comparisons with the best left-backs in the world.
The Bayern Munich full-back who has carved out a niche for himself as one of the best young players in the world was once again subject to comparison on a live stream on his TikTok, and this time his competition was Luke Shaw.
The Manchester United full-back was described to be “clear of” Davies by few users, to which an innocent Davies asked about the meaning of the statement.
When multiple fans told him about the meaning of the statement, comprehension dawned on his face as he understood that Shaw was pitted to be better than him.
“Oh, so that’s what it means”, said a smiling Davies as he also went on to agree with the statement – also adding that Shaw is a very good player indeed.
The Canadian full-back was at his humble best as he acknowledged the England defender who is fresh off a fruitful season for club and country.
Shaw was influential to help Manchester United and England reach the UEFA Europa League final and the EURO 2020 final respectively, even though neither campaign ended with a trophy.
Davies who can boast of being a Champions League winner in his own right, showed immense sportsmanship spirit as he acknowledged his English counterpart in the video that has since gone viral on Twitter.
“ I get it now! It means he’s better.. Yeah I mean he is, he’s a really good player.”— United Zone (@ManUnitedZone_) July 22, 2021
