I’m a professional footballer and life is very cool but has its downsides, especially after training when nothing to do


BAYERN MUNICH star Alphonso Davies has opened up on the pros and cons that come with being a football superstar. 

The 21-year-old is among the hottest properties in world football, and widely regarded as one of the best left-backs on the planet.

But, according to Davies, while life as a footballer is “very cool” there are plenty of downsides.

He split from his football pro girlfriend Jordyn Huitema in May after five-years of dating.

And he recently admitted living as a professional football star is harder than what people might think. 

The Canadian international revealed there is “nothing to do” once his Bayern Munichtraining is finished.

He also confessed that he is far from a social butterfly, and only has five friends.

Speaking before breaking up with his long-term partner, Davies said on his Twitchchannel: “Life as a professional footballer is very cool, no doubt.

“To chill and enjoy life. But after training, there’s nothing to do.”

Davies was born in a refugee camp in Ghanaafter his family fled civil war in Liberia.

He spent the first five years of his life in the camp before settling in Edmonton, Canada

The full-back continued: “For me, because I don’t have a family and my girlfriend not living with me, I’m by myself.

“It’s a little bit worrying not having something to do and especially when all your friends have work. 

“I probably have like five friends. I’m a popular loser.”
