Ghanaian born Canadian footballer Alphonso Davies has revealed his dreams of becoming an actor after football following his sensational viral tiktok video on Social Media.

The 19-year old re-enacted a scene from comedy show Brooklyn 99 on his tiktok account, which got the Bayern Munich star to become an internet sensation.

Davies disclosed his desire of venturing into the movie industry, adding that actors Idris Elba and Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson as his role models.

“I post on social media for the fans to get to know me and a different side of football,” he told the BBC.

“My team-mates enjoy it. There’s a little bit of joking here and there but, overall, they don’t mind me doing the TikTok as long as I perform on the field.

“A couple of players have TikTok now – I think I’ve inspired them to get it. The first person that comes to mind is Robert Lewandowski – I think I inspired him to get it but I’m not sure, maybe he got inspiration from somewhere else.

“I try to take funny experiences in my personal life to twist it into a funny way to express myself.”

He added: “Being an actor, I mean it’s not really my goal right now but if it happens, it happens. You can always dream about being something else.”

The Canada international recently extended his contract with the Bavarians till the summer of 2025.
