Kluiv­ert’s son scores for Ajax

New Straits Times - - Sport -

THE HAGUE: The teenage son of for­mer Ajax and Barcelona striker Pa­trick Kluiv­ert scored his first top flight goal for Ajax on Sun­day in a 1-1 draw against Ex­cel­sior.

At just 17-years and 318 days Justin Kluiv­ert beat his fa­ther’s mark as the now Paris Saint Ger­main di­rec­tor of foot­ball was 18years and 58-days when he bagged his first league goal for Ajax.

The younger man, who bears a strong re­sem­blance to his fa­ther, has played for the Nether­lands at var­i­ous age groups as a fly­ing right-winger and was pro­moted into the Ajax first team squad in the New Year.

Kluiv­ert se­nior came to pub­lic at­ten­tion in the 1995 Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal when he came off the bench to score the win­ner against AC Mi­lan.

He re­mains the youngest player to have scored in the Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal at 18- years, 10-months and 23-days. AFP
