Post subject:  Alphonso Davies: Ghanaian, Liberian or Canadian?

Born: November 2, 2000 (age 19 years), Buduburam, Ghana

Davies was born to Liberian parents in Buduburam, a refugee camp in Gomoa East District, Ghana. His parents lived there after fleeing their homeland during the Second Liberian Civil War, which displaced more than 450,000 people in Liberia. When Davies was five, his family moved to Canada, eventually relocating to Edmonton.[6][10] On June 6, 2017, he officially received Canadian citizenship.

Hint: He's definatly NOT Naija

Barcelona rejected chance to sign Bayern Munich wonderkid Alphonso Davies ‘because he’s Canadian’

BARCELONA reportedly rejected the chance to sign Alphonso Davies "because he is Canadian".

Bayern Munich's whizkid is one of the world's best left-backs and was outstanding in their recent 8-2 Champions League thrashing of Barcelona.

But he could have been turning out for the Catalans as they were offered him before he signed for Bayern, according to Chilean journalist Luis Omar Tapia.

Davies bagged a stunning assist after a solo run during Friday's rout.

And after his scintillating performance, Tapia tweeted: "Here is a did you know?

"[Hristo] Stoitchkov spoke to [Barca chief Josep Maria] Bartomeu about Davies months before Bayern came on board. His response was, he is Canadian no thanks."

The 19-year-old has joint Canadian and Liberian citizenship.

But he has 17 international caps for Canada and has bagged five goals from those games.

He started his career with MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps before he was snapped up by Bayern in January 2019.

Actually, he did not have a hard life.
He does not even remember the first 5 years of his life - the "hardest" part

GFA must really suck ballz to lose Davis to Canada. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: Even Bosnia and Morocco have gotten players from Canada. How I wish Davis was a Liberian refugee born in Osun state. He would have been a Super Eagle. Easy :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Don't think he is Ghanaian since he was born on a refugee camp and not in the country so to speak.

Dude sherrap. He was born on Ghanaian soil so that should automatically secure him Ghanaian citizenship. 90% of the French team have 0 ties to France other than being born somewhere in France. Why should Davis be any different. The GFA effed up big time.

If you were born or raised in France what other connection do you need? The only player for them I remember not growing up there was Trezeguet.

Being born while a refugee doesn't always count as national soil, similar if you're born while your parents are on diplomatic duties.

His parents arent diplomats so that dont count. Stop using technicalities here. If Davis was born in a refugee camp in France, he would be playing for France.

The Ghana GK was going by the first amendment to the Naija constitution: Money talks

He doesn't have citizenship, in order to get citizenship he/his family would have had to give up refugee status and risk not moving to Canada.
