Patrick Kluivert believes his son Justin was right to reject advances from Manchester United and move to Roma.
The 19-year-old was hugely impressive during his time with Ajax in the Eredivisie, and was linked with a summer move to a number of big clubs.
United, Liverpool and Tottenham were all rumoured to be interested in signing Kluivert, but he eventually joined Roma for a fee that could reach âŹ18.75m.
âIâm very satisfied with what he is doing,â Patrick toldÂ La Gazzetta dello Sport.
âHe doesnât speak much, but he is someone who knows how to listen and is motivated, I would have liked to stay in Ajax for another year, but he chose for himself. I think Roma is a good solution.
âA jump to the Premier League would have been difficult. I think United would have been too big a jump. RomaÂ is an important club, but the pressures are lower.
âRoma must not win by force and it is a club that is used to good football. It is the ideal place for Justin right now. Then, who doesnât dream of Barcelona? But Italian football is catching up and Justin can take advantage of it.â
