Ryan Gravenberch is far from starting. There was even a public opinion that he was being deceived by director Julian Nagelsmann.
Bayern Munich, led by coach 메이저사이트 Nagelsmann, drew 1-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt in the 18th round of the 2022-2023 German Bundesliga held at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany on the 29th (Korean time). After three consecutive league draws, Bayern still maintained the lead, but allowed Union Berlin to chase by one point.
In this situation, criticism is strong over coach Nagelsmann’s selection of players. Germany’s Sport 1 expressed doubts about Nagelsmann’s starting appointment with an article titled “Gravenberch is just being fooled.”
Gravenberch made an impressive performance as a substitute after Leon Goretzka’s injury in the 17th round against Bayern FC Koln, the previous match. He has proven his potential in the central midfield position.
Coach Nagelsmann said of Gravenberch ahead of the Eintracht match, “There is a high possibility of starting,” and “He did very well. I’m trying to follow my flow.” However, it was Thomas Müller, not Gravenberch, who started against Eintracht.
Regarding the reason for selecting Muller, he said, “Muller is the face of an experienced club that can and should be responsible in this situation. We must have one or two central axes.”
According to Sport 1, after the announcement of the starting lineup for the match against Eintracht, a fan strongly protested, saying, “Gravenberch is just being fooled. How can he not start as a starter. It’s strange if he doesn’t leave in the summer.” revealed
Graven Verch, a 20-year-old youngster, grew up in the AFC Ajax academy and made his professional debut. After playing 30 league games as a central midfielder at Ajax in the 2021-2022 season and scoring 2 goals and 5 assists, he joined Bayern. He has never been a starter in 12 league appearances.
