kluivert-jnrThe 17-year-old winger, who has been outstanding for the clubs U19’s this season, was handed his second start for Jong Ajax in a week on Friday as they traveled to Cambuur.

Kluivert gave the Cambuur defence problems throughout the game and with the score 2-1 to Ajax in the final moments he earned a penalty. The youngster stepped up to take it himself, and although his effort was saved, Kluivert followed up to net on the rebound.

Kluivert Jr gets one over on his dad, having scored his first professional goal, aged 17 and 211 days. That’s 211 days younger than when Patrick Kluivert scored his first for the club.
