Justin Kluivert, a Roma loanee, said he could imagine staying for a long time at RB Leipzig, but stressed that it was not his decision.
In July 2018, the 21-year-old arrived at Roma and played 68 Giallorossi competitive games, but transferred on loan with an option to purchase last summer.
He has suffered from injuries during his time in Germany and has played 15 competitive games, scoring twice, but he pictures a future with Die Roten Bullen.
“At the moment, I can certainly imagine it,” he told Spox.com. But the decision, finally, is not mine alone. We’re going to see what the future holds.’
At a young age, he arrived in Roma and revealed that his parent, Patrick, wanted him to stay with Ajax.
“He said, “Dad figured remaining in Ajax for another year would do me good. “It’s important to listen to parental advice, but also to listen to yourself.
“It was the best time for me. It was a movement that supported me a great deal. It was important to be faced with challenges for the first time in my career, which made me mature.
The Dutch winger, however, said that he was pleased with his move to the German Bundesliga and said that coach Julian Nagelsmann helped him become more versatile.
Kluivert added, “I had already visited the Leipzig Training Centre in 2018, I don’t know why I didn’t choose it right away.” “But I’m glad to be here now.
“In the Bundesliga and the Champions League, we compete at a high level. Nagelsmann makes me more flexible.
Often he makes me play on the wing, sometimes he makes me play more centrally. Since I can play at a high pace, I like it.
“There’s more room here than in Series A. I can imagine a long time in Leipzig. I feel fulfilled.
Until the end of the season and beyond, I want to give my best. We’re going to see what the future holds for me.’
