Marco van Basten frowned after seeing an interview Ryan Gravenberch gave midweeks after Ajax‘s 0-5 victory at Fortuna Sittard. The midfielder voted Ajax talent of the year last season announced that he was struggling to stay focused, if things go too easy.
Ajax had easily won in Sittard, after defeating SC Cambuur 9-0 just before. “If we get ahead so fast, I find it hard to keep that focus. I’ll get a little too easy,” he said. Van Basten believes that Gravenberch is not in a position to make such statements. “This one is just coming up: how many good matches did he play?” , let San Marco fall off in Rondo at Ziggo Sport.
“If you excel weekly in the Dutch competition, in every field… “, says Van Basten. The argument that Gravenberch is only nineteen years old does not go into the analyst. “But that‘s why! And then you’ve been eaten up?”
