Gravenberch, who has selected the No.38 shirt, received a warm welcome from Jürgen Klopp and his teammates – including compatriots Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo – upon his arrival, and now can't wait to grace Anfield as a Liverpool player.
The 21-year-old sat down with Liverpoolfc.com shortly after putting pen to paper on a long-term contract to conduct his first interview as a Red...
Ryan, it's deadline day but the move is done. How are you feeling to have joined Liverpool?
Yeah, I'm very happy. Very happy that the deal is done and I'm finally here.
How have the last couple of days been for you? This move has happened quite quickly…
For me, I just had to be relaxed. I spoke a lot with my agent and he said to me, 'Everything is going to be alright.' For me, I had to just be relaxed and just wait for this moment.
Was it difficult to be relaxed given all the speculation?
To be honest, for myself it was quite difficult but at the end I'm very happy to be here.
Why are Liverpool the right club for you?
If you see it from the outside, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world. Also the fans, the stadium, I think everything from the outside is top. So that's why.
Obviously there are a couple of guys here in the team that you already know from the national team. Did you speak with Virgil and Cody about the move?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Before the move I spoke a lot with the guys and they said we have a good team, everything is top here. Actually my decision was quick.
They seemed pretty happy to see you this morning…
You also know another Liverpool legend in Gini Wijnaldum. Have you had an opportunity to speak with him?
Not yet, not yet. I didn't speak with him but I'm definitely going to speak to him after this move.
Welcome to the club
