Promises broken? Young star Gravenberch teases after leaving Bayern

Ryan Gravenberch did not have a successful time at FC Bayern. Many in Munich had expected great performances from the young Dutchman. But it never came to that. Now, after leaving Liverpool FC, the young footballer is speaking out.

Ryan Gravenberch came to FC Bayern from Ajax Amsterdam as a great talent. But the young Dutchman was never able to assert himself in Munich. In the summer he then moved to Liverpool FC. Gravenberch is now accusing Bayern of not keeping promises.

Gravenberch said in an interview with the Dutch TV station “Viaplay” said Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp showed him a clear plan when the two spoke on the phone before the move: “They wanted to build me up slowly, but I would get my chances. That was the most important thing I wanted,” Gravenberch said.

FC Bayern: Promise to Gravenberch not kept?

The midfielder stated: “I got the minutes I expected”. When asked whether Klopp had kept his promises better than those in charge at Bayern, the 21-year-old replied with a laugh: “Actually, yes.”

This raises the accusation that the Bayern bosses had made promises to Gravenberch about the possible number of minutes he would play, which subsequently did not materialize.

Ex-Bayern player Gravenberch: Intensity in the Premier League higher than in the Bundesliga

He was only used very rarely in the Bundesliga, but Gravenberch says he quickly settled in in the Premier League. “The intensity is higher there,” he noted compared to the Bundesliga: “The Premier League is number one in the world. It’s different than where I come from.”

Gravenberch added: “I got off to a good start and am very happy about it.” His next goal was his first Premier League goal, announced on the Liverpool FC website: “I need one!”

Jürgen Klopp thinks highly of his new signing: “I really like him as a boy and player. It’s really nice to see him starting to believe in himself again,” said the top German coach.
