Another Gravenberch snub, Konate message & Gakpo asterisk – Latest LFC News

Liverpool are buoyant after their latest win, but the Netherlands’ stubborn streak continues with another Ryan Gravenberch omission, while Jurgen Klopp had a message for France’s manager.


Dutch cold shoulder for Gravenberch

The Netherlands continue to hold a bizarre grudge against 21-year-old Gravenberch choosing to find his feet at Liverpool rather than join the under-21s in September.

He was left out of both the senior and youth squad in the October break and has again been overlooked for the November internationals, having missed out for both provisional squads.

It is at odds with his form at his new club but as it has been in recent months, their loss is Liverpool’s gain!

As for Cody Gakpo, he was left out of Ronald Koeman’s provisional senior squad but that is with the caveat that he can still be turned to when the final team is announced on November 10.

For that to be the case, he must prove his fitness – which he has already started the process of after playing 24 minutes against Toulouse on return from a knee injury.
