In his press conference on Monday, Jullian Nagelsmann discussed Ryan Gravenberch's need for more playing time. The 20-year-old midfielder moved from Ajax in the summer and has yet to start in league play:

"Patience is a very important point. The most important thing in communicating with the player is that the player knows what is required of him, which areas he is doing well and which he needs to improve in order to get more playing time."

"But I don't see the whole drama. - Just be patient, Bayern Munich have a very good squad, you always have to be better than your competitors. There's no reason for me not to field the best players."

With Joshua Kimmich out, Nagelsmann shared that Gravenberch could receive a starting nod against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League: "It is possible that he will start tomorrow. I haven't made a decision yet."
