Kluivert believes that he can be just like his father

Justin Kluivert, the Ajax wonder-kid, insisted that he wants to follow the footprints of his father Partick who was one of the best world’s players and used to play for Barcelona.

The young Kluivert has been impressing for Ajax Amsterdam this season and if he will manage to continue like that, there is a bright future ahead of him. However, he wants to be just like his father and it’s not an easy thing to achieve as Patrick Kluivert managed to achieve a lot of things and he was one of the biggest stars of his time.

The Ajax youngster spoke about his future as he said, according to Goal“I want to keep the Kluivert name high. Everyone knows the name. That must motivate you. I’m going to the top like my father. Maybe it will be a bit less, maybe better. I don’t find it irritating, though. He just makes me proud. It’s nice to have a father like that. He has been on the ride.”

He also added that he is happy that he was given a chance to play as a left-wing: “I’m happy that I’ve had the chance on the left wing lately. That is really my position, but I must get better and must make more goals. I’m 18 years old and only just starting. Everything is different now. Opponents get to know you and I get covered twice as much. I see it as a compliment.”

In the end, Kluivert spoke about his talk with José Mourinho and denied that a possible transfer was the topic: “Mourinho did not have a second to discuss a transfer. He thought it was nice to see me. Mourinho knows me from when I was a child and my father played at Barcelona while Mourinho worked there as an assistant coach.”
