Bayern Munich resident roadrunner Alphonso Davies is in a grim situation. After starting the year off on the wrong foot with a COVID infection, the star left-back is currently still sidelined long after recovering from myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle. The condition will keep him out for at least four weeks, but according to authorities, if the problem was related to his COVID infection, he would have to stop playing for at least three months.
While it’s unclear exactly how long Davies will be out of action, Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann will be desperately awaiting his return as his side aim to win a tenth straight Bundesliga title and a sixth Champions League. .
However, according to Davies’ Instagram story, the defender isn’t letting his condition get to him too much. On the contrary, it looks like he’s found a pretty good way to spend his free time right now.
Davies’ Insta story showed a table laden with Lego blocks, with a huge box in the background. On the box is the Millennium Falcon, the most popular spacecraft in the star wars franchise. The heavily modified YT-1300 light freighter is the fastest ship in the galaxy, so it’s probably only fitting that Davies, one of the fastest players in the world, should try his hand at building it.
Davies will need all his time to build the Falcon. This particular set is part of the Lego star wars Ultimate Collector Series, and is the fourth largest Lego set in the world at 7,541 pieces. Only the Lego world map (more than 11,000 pieces), the Titanic (9,090 coins) and the Colosseum (9,036 coins) have more coins than Han Solo’s trusty spaceship.
the Falcon isn’t cheap either. It costs about $1,000, which is way more than what Titanic costs (about $630). It just shows how much something can cost when you slap a star wars logo on the box, and how much these footballers actually earn to be able to afford such luxury.
If you had the money to buy almost any toy or other item in the world, what would it be? Let us know in the comments, and we wish Phonzie a speedy recovery!
