Liverpool legend says ‘brilliant’ player has now dipped & ‘doesn’t get involved enough’ in games

Posted by

John Aldridge has noticed a ‘dip’ in Ryan Gravenberch’s form in recent weeks, with the Dutchman struggling to get immersed in games.

As with many other young players, it’s unlikely to be a permanent dip, of course, as the former professional acknowledged in his column with the Echo“Sometimes he looks brilliant but he doesn’t get involved enough in the games. But that’ll come, he’s only young. He’ll get nurtured into that with coaching.”

The Merseysiders are set to next take on Burnley at home following a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Give Ryan Gravenberch time

It’s a huge shame that Jurgen Klopp and his coaching team won’t be here to oversee the best the former Bayern Munich man will have to offer in a red shirt.

That’s not to suggest another coach couldn’t coax out Gravenberch’s best form, of course. There’s no doubt plenty of potential there to unlock in a footballer grossly mismanaged over in Germany.

With that in mind, we have to be patient with our No.38 – it’ll come in time.

  1. I’ve watched him closely since arriving.
    He’s technically brilliant however!
    Shines when we’re dominating and moving forward.
    Dosent get stuck in with the tough stuff that comes when we aren’t dominating.
    He goes missing if playing 90 minutes.
    RECENT games:
    He cannot play on the right side, he is totally ineffective.
    My comments above were with him operating from left to centre.
    There was a reason he was only trusted in Germany to start 2 games.
