Jozy Altidore hopes Alphonso Davies can be role model for black players

Alphonso Davies, fresh off sealing a move to Bayern Munich, returned to the Vancouver lineup with two goals and two assists in a win over Minnesota.
Shaka Hislop and Janusz Michallik delve deeper into Bayern's acquisition of Alphonso Davies and what the club needs to do to ensure he continues to flourish.
Then ESPN FC crew evaluate the value of Bayern Munich's $13.5 million transfer of Vancouver Whitecaps youngster Alphonso Davies.

U.S. striker Jozy Altidore hopes Alphonso Davies can be a role model for young black players following the 17-year-old's record move to Bayern Munich.

In signing for the German champions last month, Davies broke the transfer record for an outgoing MLS player that had stood since Altidore's move to Villarreal in 2008.

Altidore said he believes Davies has a "very, very bright future" and that the Canada international can be an inspiration for others to follow in his footsteps.

"Huge congrats to him, especially to see him as a young black kid. You need more black role models, especially in soccer," Altidore told reporters, according to SportsNet.

"Hopefully [Canada Soccer] does a good job of advertising and promoting him in a way where kids who look like him say, 'You know what, I can be Alphonso Davies, too.'"

Canada Soccer has already given Davies some global exposure by inviting him to address the FIFA Congress in Russia ahead of the June vote that gave the U.S., Canada and Mexico the rights to co-host the 2026 World Cup.

Davies, who will stay with the Vancouver Whitecaps until the end of the MLS season, will face Altidore's Toronto FC in the Canadian Championship final starting next week.

"The transfer is spectacular, I'm a huge fan of his -- his eagerness to learn, to play, that youthful exuberance, you love to see it," Altidore added. "I hope he continues to grow and I look forward to watching his career."
