"I am extremely honoured to join such a great club as Paris St Germain and to take on the role of director of football," Kluivert told the club's website(www.psg.fr). "I will conduct my mission with great ambition and rigor.
"We are all in Paris to reach the very high objectives set by the club and meet the expectations of the players and supporters alike."
