Roma signing Justin Kluivert accepts comparisons with his father

AS Roma signing Justin Kluivert knows he'll have to accept comparisons with his father.

Kluivert's father, Patrick, was also a footballer, scoring 122 goals in 257 games for Barcelona.

“Dad had a great career, and it's not hard for me to relate to him. He encourages me every day and I don't feel the pressure.

“He talks to me a lot and it's something I have to listen to, I'm lucky he shares things with me."

Kluivert joined the Giallorossi from Ajax in a €17.25m deal earlier this summer.
