Ajax Justin Kluivert

Ajax’s Justin Kluivert fuels speculation over exit after slamming the club

Summer exit

Ajax starlet Justin Kluivert has fueled speculation that he could leave the club this summer after slamming the club in a recent interview.

The Dutchman has been the subject of interest from several clubs since his breakthrough in Holland.

The player is seen to be one of the most talented youngsters in football and Ajax are certainly lucky to have him.

Though, the player has slammed the club for the way that they have treated him over the past year or so.

No new deal

Kluivert has explained that he will not sign a new deal with the club because he believes they only want to cash in on him.

‘But Ajax wants me to extend my contract so that they can ask more,’ he explained in an interview with De Volkskrant today.

‘My plan was to stay, but a lot has happened lately. The public thinks that it is only about money, while everyone knows that I was right.

‘I was not waiting for money at all. Football is important. I want to develop myself.

‘I was more or less told that I had to sign up [at the beginning of the season]. Otherwise I had to leave.

‘The most important thing for Ajax is that I extend my contract. Then it’s not about football, but about money.’

Sold behind his back

To further his assumptions, the club nearly sold Kluivert to Tottenham behind his back last summer.

The player has revealed that the club had agreed a deal with the club to see him move to North London in a €20million deal.

Though, the player or his representatives were not even told about it until the last second.

Kluivert admitted that he didn’t want to leave the club and rejected the chance to move which left him frustrated with the club.

“I heard that at the last minute. That says nothing about Ajax, but about the people in the club,” he explained in the same interview.

“Somewhere it was laughing. You see how the football world works. If you get a little higher, it looks like a game.

“They do what they want. I now get that feeling again: they do what they want.”

Safe to say, it looks as though Kluivert will be on the move this summer…
