Ajax player, Ryan Gravenberch has come out to say that the comparisons to Paul Pogba won’t put him under pressure. He recently revealed that he doesn’t feel extra pressure anytime he is compared with the Frenchman.
According to him, he really doesn’t feel bothered by being likened to such big players because he is focused on being a future star like many expect him to.
He added that he is only focused on being himself on the pitch irrespective of comparisons.
His words, “I see people comparing me to such celebrities as a compliment and doesn’t put me under any extra pressure,”
“I think I should try to be myself. Ten years from now, if young footballers are told they look like Ryan Gravenberch, then I’ve done well in my career.”
“As a midfielder in an attacking team like Ajax you have to score more than three goals,”
“That is obvious. Especially if your team scores 102 times. Around the penalty area I have to shoot earlier and more often. And it is important that I get into the 18-yard area more often.”
“Now that I have won the Johan Cruyff Award as the greatest talent in the Eredivisie, I am finished with talent. I also want to win the Golden Shoe. And I’m going to do my best to achieve that goal.”
“But the team interest always comes before the individual interest. That is why becoming champions, winning the cup and spending the winter in the Champions League are the most important goals.”
