This season, FC Bayern Munich has been somewhat capable. The word “crisis” hung over the nightclub. After leaving the Champions League and the DFB Cup, the championship could have been saved at least, albeit only on the last match day.

But then the drama continued immediately, in the form of the sacking of Oliver Kahn as CEO and Hasan Salihamidzic as sporting director. That was also very messy. Depending on which side you ask, opinions differ on this matter. Finally, Honorary President Uli Hoeneß always hovers over all of this and loves to share everything that’s going on.

It’s no surprise that a season like this doesn’t leave players the same. Someone has spoken now – because he is not satisfied with his season at Bayern.

Ryan Gravenberch is unhappy with Bayern Munich’s season

In an interview, Ryan Gravenberch criticized his few appearances last season. It ended well for him. In the championship win over Cologne, the professional was in the starting lineup. “I trained well during the week and the coach rewarded me for that,” the 21-year-old told the Dutch newspaper.De Telegraaf“.

The midfielder moved to Säbener Straße a year ago from Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam. Last season, he played 24 matches in the Bundesliga and six in the Champions League, such as “soccer scheduleHe writes. Of these, he has been substituted 21 times, so he rarely starts.

“I definitely expected to get more opportunities and minutes than I actually got,” says Gravenberch. “I did a very good preparation and I thought I deserved it.” He admits that his former coach Julian Nagelsmann faced a difficult choice with so many good players on the bench. However, sometimes he didn’t even get a chance to clown. He explains it this way: “The pressure on him (Julian Nagelsmann) was incredibly high, which is why he wasn’t quick to try new young players.” Nagelsmann chose security.

Bayern Munich: Gravenperch can imagine change

When Gravenberch sat on the bench for three straight competitive games in October, he thought: “Seriously, what is that?” His parents, who had moved with him from the Netherlands to Munich, comforted him during this time. “They gave me good advice. I don’t know what would have happened if I had been there alone.”

“Seriously, what is this?”

As is known, there was a change of coach in Munich in March. Julian Nagelsmann had to go, Thomas Tuchel took over. Gravenbirch states that things have improved under the new coach. More risk would have given the 21-year-old Dutchman a good feeling. However, it should not remain that way: “I just want to play more, preferably at Bayern Munich. Otherwise at a club where I play 100 per cent. Because I don’t want to experience a year like this again.”

So Gravenberch could actually imagine a change. He is contractually bound to Bayern Munich until 2027. He learned a lot in his first season, but: “I just want to play football.” And if he is not allowed to do so in Munich, the only option is change.

Gravenberch is now appearing in the European Under-21 Championships in Romania and Georgia. He will play his first match for the Netherlands against neighboring Belgium on Wednesday 21 June. He has not yet spoken to those in charge of Bayern over the European Under-21 Championship. “Maybe there were plans with me,” the midfielder said. “I haven’t really talked to the coach about it yet. He will come after the European Championship.” “Then we’ll see how it is.”
