According to former Ajax coach Brian Tevreden, Ryan Gravenberch is a ‘better version of Paul Pogba’.

18 year old Ryan Gravenberch joined Ajax’s academy in 2010 and became the club’s youngest Eredivisie player aged 16 years and 130 days.

Tevreden told Goal: “Physically, I see Frank [Rijkaard] in him from back in the day because he’s tall and very strong.

“But technically, I would say he’s a better version of Pogba in his best days at Juventus, in terms of his technique and his presence on the pitch.

“He’s very dominant like Pogba was, and that’s what I see in Ryan.”
