Kluivert keen on Premiership
Patrick Kluivert
Kluivert would be a target for Man Utd and Arsenal
Football Focus, BBC One, Saturday 22 February 1210-1300 GMT

Barcelona star Patrick Kluivert has told Football Focus he cannot rule out a future move to the English Premiership.

"You never know, one day I might come and join the Premiership," said the Dutchman.

"The difference in England is they keep on supporting you, whatever the results."

Kluivert knows all about disgruntled fans because, despite winning 11 successive Champions League games, Barca lie 15th in the Spanish league table.

Manchester United or Arsenal would be the obvious choices if the 26-year-old were to move to England, although he says he is happy in Spain for now.

Barcelona sacked their Dutch manager Louis van Gaal at the start of this month after a string of disastrous and baffling results.

Apart from Kluivert, Barcelona also possess such talent as Frank de Boer, Javier Saviola and Juan Roman Riquelme.

Yugoslavian Radomir Antic, the 53-year-old former Atletico and Real Madrid coach, is the man charged with pulling Barcelona out of their domestic slump.
