Justin Kluivert Profile
The first steps on a fooball pitch by Justin Kluivert were made at local club sv Diemen, before joining Ajax in 2007. Going through the ranks of the Ajax youth system, Justin Kluivert made his professional debut for the Amsterdam based team on the 16th of September of 2016. He was brought into the game in 67th minute as a substitute for Gino Dekker in a match with Jong Ajax versus MVV in the Dutch second league, the Eerste Divisie. The match finished with a 1-0 away loss for the Ajax reserves.
His debut for the first team of Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie followed only several months later. On the 15th of January 2017 Justin Kluivert came onto the pitch in the 39th minute from the bench, to replace Amin Younes in a match away at PEC Zwolle. Ajax won the match at PEC Zwolle with 1-3.
On the 19th of March of this year Justin Kluivert scored his first goal for Ajax. In the Eredivisie match away at Excelsior from Rotterdam, Kluivert scored the only goal for Ajax in a match that finished in a 1-1 stalemate.
Patrick Kluivert, former striker of top clubs such as Ajax, Barcelona and AC Milan, became world news when he scored the winner in the Champions League final of 1995 versus AC Milan. At the age of 18, as a product of the legendary Ajax youth system, Kluivert came on as a substitute in the 70th minute, replacing Jari Litmanen. In the 85th minute the youngster turned an assist of Frank Rijkaard into a goal, which turned out to be the winning goal in a match that finished 1-0.
Currently Patrick Kluivert is technical manager of French top side Paris St. Germain.

Predicted Line-Up Ajax
No matter what will happen, if Justin wants to follow into his dad’s footsteps he will also have to do it from the bench. It will be very unlikely to see Justin’s name in the starting XI of Ajax in their match versus Man Utd in the Europa League final.
Apart from central striker Kasper Dolberg, the Ajax attack will consist of Amin Younes and Bertrand Traoré. Under normal circumstances Justin Kluivert will be in the mix with newly signed Brazilian starlet David Neres as a sub for Amin Younes.
Predicted line-up Ajax
Ajax: Andre Onana, Joel Veltman, Matthijs de Ligt, Davinson Sánchez, Jairo Riedewald; Lasse Schöne, Davy Klaassen, Hakim Ziyech; Amin Younes, Kasper Dolberg, Bertrand Traoré.
Substitutes: Justin Kluivert, David Neres, Daley Sinkgraven, Heiko Westermann, Dirk Boer, Kenny Tete, Donny van de Beek
Coach: Peter Bosz
