Footballing legend Patrick Kluivert has encouraged his son to stay at Ajax, despite interest from many huge clubs including Manchester United, as per Sky Sports News.

Justin Kluivert, the highly rated 18-year-old, has been very impressing in a red and white Ajax shirt, becoming a fan favourite and an essential part to the team.

He has scored six goals so far this season, including a hat-trick against Roda in November, and has been ever-present for the Dutch giants.

Ajax currently sit second in the table, seven points behind rivals PSV Eindhoven. And despite interest from Europe’s biggest clubs including Manchester United, Justin’s dad Patrick Kluivert is against him leaving Amsterdam.

Patrick Kluivert said in an interview about his son (via Sky Sports News):

He should not leave his country soon. It’s difficult to say no to Barca, but also to other big teams.

He should choose the team that responds most to his play and not to the one that pays him more money.

Patrick Kluivert, who spent three years at Ajax Amsterdam, notably scoring the late winning goal in the 1995 UEFA Champions League Final for the Dutch outfit, wishes for his son to carry on for a little longer in his home country.

However, football is unpredictable and when the likes of Manchester United are linked to him, anything can happen.
