Kluivert claims De Ligt regrets Juventus move over Barcelona
Tuesday 19 Nov
Former Barcelona striker and current academy director Patrick Kluivert has said he thinks Netherlands defender Matthijs de Ligt “slightly regrets” his decision to join Juventus over Blaugrana.
De Ligt’s switched to the Serie A champions starting on the bench before Chiellini’s injury where he emerged as a first team starter but has come under pressure for giving away penalty.
“I didn’t personally try to convince him about joining Barcelona.
“I only told him about the positive aspects of Barcelona as a club and city.
“We are obviously talking about a great defender, and in the end he made a choice. I think he slightly regrets it now, but that’s the way it is.
“In life, you must make choices, sometimes good ones and sometimes bad. You have to learn from your decisions.”
