Official: Barcelona great Patrick Kluivert joins Super Eagles star at history-making Adana

Adana Demirspor, a Turkish football club, has made an exciting appointment by bringing former Netherlands international Patrick Kluivert on board as the club’s new Technical Director. Kluivert will be taking over from Vicenzo Montella, the former Italian international forward.

Montella led Adana Demirspor to a remarkable fourth-place finish in the Süper Lig during the 2022-23 season, securing their qualification for European competitions for the first time in the club’s history. This achievement sets the stage for Kluivert to continue the club’s success.

In his new role, Kluivert will have the opportunity to work closely with talented Super Eagles winger Henry Onyekuru. Onyekuru played a vital role in Adana’s impressive campaign last season, scoring eight goals and providing three assists in 30 league appearances. His outstanding performances have left a lasting impression on the club.

According to reports, Adana Demirspor has exercised their option to secure Onyekuru’s services permanently. The Nigerian forward has reportedly signed a three-year contract, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2026. Adana Demirspor will pay €3.5 million to finalize the deal.

Under Kluivert’s guidance, Onyekuru and the rest of the team will strive to challenge reigning champions Galatasaray in the upcoming Super Lig season. Additionally, the club will aim to make an impact in their inaugural participation in the Europa Conference League.

After retiring from professional football in 2008, he has honed his managerial skills, serving as an assistant manager for the Netherlands and Cameroon national teams.

With Kluivert’s appointment, Adana Demirspor is poised to make further strides in their future endeavors. His arrival signals an exciting new chapter for the club and its fans.
