Alphonso Davies’ Priceless Reaction To Drake’s Instagram Follow Is Why We Love Him

It’s easy to forget Davies is only 19 and still has that hilarious teenage excitement.

Alphonso Davies had the best week of his life after he became the first Canadian to lift the Champions League trophy and garnered attention from high-profile celebrities. Just when the former Vancouver Whitecaps player thought his week couldn’t get any better, rap icon Drake gave Davies a follow on Instagram. Davies reacted accordingly.

Lifting the Champions League is one thing, but one of the biggest names in the rap game following you is an honor in itself. Drake follows less than 2,500 people on Instagram, so Davies’ freak out is well warranted. In fact, the Canadian rapper only followed 10 other soccer players before adding Davies to the coveted list.

Davies now joins the company of:

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Neymar
  • Paul Pogba
  • Marcelo
  • David Alaba
  • Mario Balotelli
  • Kealia Watt
  • Jesse Lingard
  • Daniel Sturridge
  • Jermain Defoe

Interesting that Mr. Messi isn’t included on this list. It’s definitely not because Messi isn’t cool though. A video was recently posted of the Argentine driving around listening to Chief Keef’s Love Sosa. Imagine a car pulling up next to you blaring Chief Keef and when you look over it’s goddamn Messi.

Enough about the guy that fell into the path of Davies’ destruction. Drake wasn’t the only person showing the Bundesliga Rookie of the Year love. Davies received a congratulatory tweet from his country’s Prime Minister too.

Davies probably didn’t have the same reaction to the Prime Minister’s tweet as he had with Drake’s follow. If you really want to see more of the 19-year-old’s abundant energy you can always watch his TikToks.

Davies gave a nod to Drake by using his latest song in a recap video of the young star’s first season with Bayern Munich.
