In a statement on PSG’s website, Kluivert said, “I’m extremely honoured to join a top European club like Paris Saint-Germain to take on important responsibilities there as director of football.

“From today I intend to carry out this role with a lot of ambition and rigour.

“We’re all in Paris to reach very high goals set by the club — objectives that correspond to the expectations of the players and the supporters.

“On arriving in Paris, I’d also like to thank Ajax Amsterdam, the club that allowed me to discover top-level football and which always demonstrated their confidence in me.”
