Justin Kluivert, a Roma loanee, said that he could imagine staying at RB Leipzig for a long time, but emphasized that it was not his decision.
The 21-year-old arrived at Roma in July 2018 and played 68 competitive Giallorossi games, but transferred on loan with an option to purchase last summer. He struggled with injuries during his time in Germany and played 15 competitive games, scoring twice, but he is imagining a future with Die Roten Bullen.
“At the moment, I can certainly imagine it,” he told Spox.com.
“But ultimately, the decision isn’t mine alone. We will see what the future brings. But the Dutch winger said he was satisfied with his move to the German Bundesliga and said he was made more versatile by coach Julian Nagelsmann.”
Kluivert continued, “I had already visited the Leipzig Training Centre in 2018, I don’t know why I didn’t choose it right away. But I’m glad to be here now. In the Bundesliga and the Champions League, we play at a high level. Nagelsmann makes me more flexible.
Sometimes he makes me play on the wing, sometimes he makes me play more centrally. Because I can play at a high pace, I like it. There’s more space here than in Series A. I can imagine a long time in Leipzig. I’m satisfied.
Until the end of the season and beyond, I want to give my best. We’re going to see what the future holds for me.”
