Kluivert: ‘Roma think positive’

Justin Kluivert will “think positive” going into the Europa League tie with KAA Gent and assured he is “very happy with my decision to come to Roma.”

The first leg ended 1-0 at the Olimpico, so the Round of 32 remains wide open going to Belgium.

“I reiterate that I am very happy with my decision to come to Roma,” said the Dutchman in his press conference.

“I am learning every day from more experienced teammates. My objective is to continue improving and growing as a player. I also prefer our current tactics, where I am closer to the centre-forward, although of course it’s very different from what I was accustomed to at Ajax.”

Roma had a rough few months at the start of 2020, but seem to have turned a corner with back-to-back victories over Gent and Lecce.

“It’s true that we had a series of disappointing defeats, but a season is like a marathon, so when you stumble, you can’t stop. I always try to think positive and have the utmost faith in our qualification.

“We must try to put in a good performance and win for our fans too.”
