    March 24th, 2016 the world of football lost a true great and a personal fave. This three time Ballon d’Or winner significantly changed the way the game was played as a player and manager. One example is the “Cruyff Turn” a move replicated in the modern game. His protégé Pep Guardiola is carrying out the Cruyff Legacy to this day.

    Johan Cruyff’s “Total Football” philosophy was summed up nicely when he said “In my teams, the goalie is the first attacker, and the striker the first defender."

    Johan was 68 when he died of cancer. Both football clubs Ajax Amsterdam and FC Barcelona have named football stadiums in his honour.

    Thank you Mr. Cruyff for your contributions to the Beautiful Game.

    And than you for the sad reminder.

    Unfortunately, these days, Barca lacks men of Cruyff's vision. Legacy goes on though. It's in the minds of all our former and current players that grew up in Cruyff's philosophy. And that flame will grow into fire again one day.
