Roll up, roll up for a transfer saga. Justin Kluivert explains why he won't renew his contract at Ajax...

Justin Kluivert says he won’t renew his contract at Ajax and criticised the club for ‘doing what they want’.

The 19-year-old, who has been heavily linked with Manchester United, has only a year remaining on his contract at the Johan Cruyff Arena but the son of former Holland striker Patrick has explained why he has no intention of recommitting to the club.

He told Volkstrant : “I’m not renewing my contract at Ajax. Too much has happened.

“The decreasing morale, lack of confidence, trying to sell me to Tottenham without me knowing.

“I heard about that at the last minute. That says nothing about Ajax, but about the people in the club.

“They do what they want. I get that feeling again, they do what they want.”

Kluivert also hit out at Ajax’s decision to sack coach Marcel Keizer during the season and says the pressure on the manager inevitably causes problems in the dressing room.

“Ajax change coaches too easily,| he said. “They do not really get a chance.

“You notice our coach is not really comfortable. You also saw that with Marcel Keizer.

“That’s what boys feel. You can see how trainers behave, how they express themselves, even in the press. It feels unstable.

“The team was very close at the beginning of the season. That is no longer the case.”
