BVB, News: BVB talent is rebuked
BVB talent Jayden Braaf has not really arrived in Dortmund since moving from Manchester City in the summer. Those responsible are not satisfied with the development of the 20-year-old, as U23 coach Christian Preußer talks to the Ruhr news betrayed.
“I make no secret of the fact that we have expectations of him that he has not yet been able to meet because he is not physically ready,” said Preusser. “We have already seen the beginnings of his strengths. But it may take a while.”
The youngster sometimes still lacks the necessary self-reflection and honest assessment of his own achievements. In the current season he fell short of expectations with seven appearances without any goal involvement.
“Jayden sometimes has movements that no one else in this league has, but he has no consistency in his game, he has to internalize what is important, and then it will be something, but we’re not at that point yet,” stated Prussian.
Nevertheless, BVB does not want to stick its head in the sand. “My experience with young players, even with very talented players, shows that it can work if we stay on the ball, if we don’t let it go, if we actively counteract it when things are not good,” Preusser continued.
Braaf’s contract with the black and yellow runs until June 2025.
