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
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.
