Andy Robertson welcomes Ryan Gravenberch to Liverpool with hilarious joke
| Last updated
Andy Robertson found a hilarious way to welcome his new teammate Ryan Gravenberch to the Liverpool squad.
Ryan Gravenberch officially put pen-to-paper on Friday night, joining the Reds from Bayern Munich for a fee of £34.3 million, having only joined Bayern last summer from Ajax for a fee of £15.8 million.
It completes Liverpool's midfield revolution, after selling and releasing a number of their first team players in these positions, they have signed replacements in Szoboszlai, Mac Allister and now Gravenberch.
After catching up with them briefly, they brought him into the training complex, where Gravenberch ran into left-back Andy Robertson for the first time.
The Scotsman's first line to him was: "Finally! A good Dutch player!"
Followed by: "You okay brother? Yoy good? Nice to meet you."
Although, the second line was hard to hear, as van Dijk could be heard in the background audibly laughing out loud at Robertson's joke.
Gravenberch will be the third senior Dutch member in Liverpool's new-look squad as the Reds will try to majorly improve on their performances last season.
The midfielder struggled to showcase his talents at Bayern Munich, only managing 24 Bundesliga appearances in the 2022/23 season, with only three of them being starts.
Liverpool's new no.38 will be hoping to help and transform his new team's midfield, which Jurgen Klopp is fairly confident about, saying: "Ryan knows he has to improve things but he's 21, it would be crazy if not. But he is super-talented, he can drive the ball, he can be a box-to-box threat.
"He has a good eye for a pass and a good pass. I said before, we have a big challenge to reinvent pretty much one of the most successful midfields this club ever had, and I really like it."
The Reds will be hoping to better their 5th placed, trophyless finish from last season following these new acquisitions.
