According to Justin Kluivert, his football is better since joining the Italian Lega Serie A club back in the summer of 2018.

Justin Kluivert left Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie in the summer of 2018 to join Italian Lega Serie A side AS Roma.

And there, he says he has found his best game.

Ajax? I’ve seen all of Ajax’s games, I’ve been so proud of the boys. They played well, no other team did as much as they did. Of course, I sometimes thought I could play in that team. But I chose Rome knowingly,” he was quoted by Calcio Mercato.

“What I learned at Ajax in ten years I can still do it, but now I’ve become much more complete.”

“Don’t dribble all the time, I give the energies the right way and I have a better overview. Tactically I grew up. This makes me a better footballer,” he commented.

“Last season? I have often only played twenty or ten minutes, in this season I started both championship matches in the initial formation.”

Kluivert concluded: “On Sunday I was even allowed to be a holder against Lazio. I never played such important challenges last season. So everything is going in the right direction.”
