Kluivert Pays Incredible Tribute To Former Ajax Teammate After Scoring For Roma

Justin Kluivert has scored for the very first time in the Champions League.

Roma took on Viktoria Plzeň in the latest round of fixtures when the Dutch winger found the back of the net, deciding it was the perfect time to pay tribute to former Ajax teammate Abdelhak 'Appie' Nouri.

Check it out:

You have to respect Kluivert for his fitting tribute to Nouri.

Nouri was playing a match for Ajax in July 2017 when he collapsed on the pitch.

Unfortunately, the 21-year-old Dutch midfielder suffered a cardiac arrhythmia attack, which resulted in permanent brain damage and ended his career at the Eredivisie side.

Kluivert played for Ajax from 2016 to 2018, making over 40 appearances for the club. In June, he completed a move to Roma for an initial fee of €17.25m.

Roma thrashed Viktoria Plzeň 5-0, with Edin Džeko bagging himself a hat-trick.

What did you make of Kluivert's tribute?
