Ryan Gravenberch prediction already coming true as Liverpool asked positional question

Liverpool midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has looked very good in the early weeks of his time at Anfield after signing from German side Bayern Munich during the summer.

Former Liverpool midfielder Bolo Zenden has expressed his confidence in Ryan Gravenberch’s success at his old club following his transfer from Bayern Munich. Gravenberch, who started his career at Ajax, was signed by Liverpool on transfer deadline day as part of the club’s midfield overhaul during the summer. The Netherlands international is highly regarded by the Reds and is seen as a versatile player who can excel in various roles and systems in the midfield.

Gravenberch had limited playing time at Bayern Munich last season, making only three starts in 24 Bundesliga appearances. However, since joining Liverpool, he has already featured in eight matches, including a recent start in the team’s 2-0 victory over Everton. Zenden, who made 47 appearances for Liverpool during his playing career, believes that Gravenberch will become an integral part of Jürgen Klopp’s squad.

Zenden acknowledges that players coming to the Premier League often require time to adapt to the different style of play and the intensity of matches. He believes that Gravenberch will gradually improve and make a significant impact for Liverpool. The only question remains regarding the specific role he will play within the team.

“I generally think that all players who come to the Premier League actually need time to acclimatize,” he told Soccer News (as translated by Sport Witness). “The way of playing is different than in other competitions. The number of matches with the intensity that they’re played at (is difficult).

“So, for Gravenberch, I think that he will gradually start to feel better and that he will certainly be important. The only question is: what role that will be? Is he going to play a more conservative role, one with more freedom going forward, as the defensive midfielder is usually Mac Allister? So yeah, Gravenberch is, of course, a player who comes with the Ajax DNA who wants to shift and appear in spaces.”

One possibility mentioned by Zenden is a more conservative role, similar to the defensive midfielder position usually occupied by Alexis Mac Allister. However, Zenden also highlights Gravenberch’s natural inclination to shift and appear in spaces, which aligns with the Ajax style. Over the first few weeks of his time at Liverpool, Gravenberch is already proving Zenden’s prediction right in terms of him improving game by game.

While it may take time for Gravenberch to fully acclimate to the Premier League, Zenden’s prediction suggests that Liverpool fans can expect great things from the talented midfielder. As he continues to grow and adapt to Klopp’s system, Gravenberch has the potential to become an important and influential figure for the club.

Liverpool.com says: As Gravenberch settles into his new surroundings and gains more experience playing alongside his Liverpool teammates, it will be intriguing to see how Klopp utilizes his skills and where he fits into the team’s tactical setup, especially with competition in attacking areas from so many other options. Whether he assumes a more defensive role or showcases his attacking prowess, Gravenberch’s presence on the pitch is sure to add depth and versatility to Liverpool’s midfield options.
