The Dutch midfielder has rarely played for his new side after a summer move from Ajax.

Ryan Gravenberch has opened up on his struggles for game time at Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians signed Gravenberch on a €19m deal, adding him to their star-studded midfield line. However, he has slipped behind Marcel Sabitzer and Leon Goretzka in Bayern’s pecking order.

“I have no regrets with joining Bayern. But to be honest, I’m disappointed as you want to play, it’s normal…,” Gravenberch told ESPN.nl

“I have to accept it but it’s difficult, I have to stay calm. I hope to have more space after the international break.”

Gravenberch has made five Bundesliga appearances from the bench so far. He also started and scored for the Bavarians in their win over Viktoria Koln in the DFB Pokal.


The Dutchman didn’t get any game time in Bayern’s disappointing defeat against Augsburg last week. 

The Bavarians continued their four-game winless run, which has cast serious doubts over Julian Nagelsmann’s future at the club.

German sources have claimed Bayern are already considering the prospect of appointing Thomas Tuchel as their next manager.

In case Bayern continue their poor run after the international break, Tuchel reportedly becomes a serious target for Bayern.

Bayern’s difficult Bundesliga schedule in the upcoming weeks will see them host Bayer Leverkusen before taking on Borussia Dortmund and Freiburg.
