Justin Kluivert was right to snub a move to Manchester United according to his father, Patrick.
Manchester United were heavily linked with a move for the Dutch international this summer, but he ultimately completed a move to Serie A club Roma where he is expected to continue his development.
However, his father – legendary Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert – thinks that a move to Old Trafford would have been too soon in his son’s career:
“I think United would have been too big a jump,” Patrick Kluivert told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Roma are an important club but the pressures are less. Roma don’t have to win at any cost and it is a club that is used to good football. It is the ideal place for Justin right now.”
