Justin Kluivert had a promising start of his adventure in Serie A on Sunday evening. Coach Eusebio Di Francesco and his teammates at AS Roma are happy with the Dutchman.
Kluivert made the switch from Ajax to Roma this summer and started on Sunday in the away match against Torino on the bench. He was allowed to start twenty minutes before time and shortly before the final signal, after a good individual action, he assisted the winning goal of Edin Dzeko.
Dzeko spoke nice words about Kluivert immediately after the match and Alessandro Florenzi also praised. 'Justin is still young and has to keep working hard, but in this game he showed what he can do', said the midfielder. 'He delivered the assist on Edin's goal, but also helped us in the game. Justin can break out matches and has shown that to Torino. '
Coach Eusebio Di Francesco brought Bryan Cristante and Patrik Schick in addition to Kluivert. 'In the first half we were threatening, but we were not in the last pass', the Roma practice manager analyzed. 'In the second half we had a hard time, but the three invaders did a great job. Justin knows what I expect from him. He still has to learn when he can best use his actions, but he has proven that he can make opponents suffer. '
