Jurgen Klopp keeps his word and helps create Liverpool’s version of Paul Pogba
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp kept his promise to his players. That allowed a relationship to blossom that could potentially produce a midfielder like Paul Pogba.
Premier League In his hectic world of football, Jurgen has an interesting story unfolding at Liverpool under the watchful eye of his manager Klopp.
There appears to be a special bond between Klopp and recently signed Ryan Gravenbirch.
Dutch international Gravenbirch joined Liverpool from Bayern Munich earlier this year and has since absorbed Anfield’s vibrant football culture.
His regular appearances as a substitute in Premier League matches and his starting appearances in all of Liverpool’s European competitions indicate his growing importance in Klopp’s plans.
The young Dutch player has already made a name for himself with two goals and one assist.
But Gravenbirch’s journey has not been without its challenges. His time at FC Bayern Munich was characterized by limited appearances, apparently due to a lack of relationship with then-manager Thomas Tuchel (previously Julian Nagelsmann). It was something.
In an interview with Viaplay (via Express), Gravenbirch expressed his dissatisfaction with his former club and compared his experiences at Bayern and Liverpool.
He pointed out that Klopp not only provided a clear plan but also kept his promises, which was in stark contrast to his experience at Bayern.
“In fact, yes (Klopp keeps his promises better),” Grabenbirch said. “When he called, he gave me a plan, and things moved very quickly from there.
That was really the most important thing I wanted. In the end, I took the chance. , I was able to get the playing time that I was promised.”
Grabenberch’s move to Liverpool was a win-win situation. He has expressed concerns about limited playing time and his dissatisfaction with Bayern Munich has been well-covered in the media.
Despite being promised increased playing time, his situation at Bayern reportedly remains unchanged. This saw him move to Liverpool for $42 million (£34 million/€39 million) in the summer transfer window.
At Liverpool, Gravenberch not only received more playing time. He has found a mentor in Klopp.
The Reds manager was reportedly a big fan of Graben-Birch before acquiring him, and their professional relationship has developed since then.
Klopp’s belief in Grafenberg’s potential is clear from recent claims that the young Dutchman is far from his peak.
Grabenwerch’s performance in Liverpool’s 5-1 Europa League win over Toulouse, in which he scored, further boosted Klopp’s confidence in him.
“He’s a good player, isn’t he?” Klopp said after the game: “I’m very happy for him. He’s really starting to enjoy football again.” “He’s not even half of his goal yet, but it’s a really good start for him.” The most important thing is how much he can still improve.
Klopp is not alone in his admiration for Grafenberg. His former coach at Ajax, Brian Tevreden, previously compared him to Paul Pogba, even though his technical skills (goals) were better.
Tevreden emphasized that Grabenberch’s physical and technical ability are key qualities that will allow him to shine at the highest level of football.
“I look at Frank Rijkaard physically, because he is tall and very strong,” Tevreden commented.
“Technically speaking, I would say that in terms of technique and presence on the pitch, he is a better version of Pogba than he was in his prime at Juventus.” He’s very dominant like Pogba and that’s what you see in Ryan.
As Grabenwerch continues to establish himself at Liverpool under Klopp’s guidance, fans and pundits alike will be keenly watching the promising player’s development.
Thanks to a supportive environment and a coach who believes in his potential, Grabenbirch looks poised to make great strides in his football career.
Liverpool.com reported that “Klopp is not hiding anything from anyone this summer”.
He told Jordan Henderson that playing time will be difficult to come by as no one at Liverpool has given any indication of an imminent rebuild.
With Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai already signed before he arrived on deadline day, Grafenwerch may have been wondering where he fit into the equation.
However, manager Klopp clearly presented his plan. If this is followed, both the player and the club will benefit.
