    Johan Cruyff



    - Seasons at the club: 1973-78
    - Games played: 227
    - Goals: 83
    - Trophies:
    1 League (1973/74)
    1 King’s Cup (1977/78)

    Cruyff (Amsterdam, Holland, 1947) is one of the best players in the world of all time and in his time, he was considered number 1.

    His immense quality saw him win worldwide recognition and he won the Golden ball award three times (1971, 1973 and 1974).

    ‘The flack’ signed for FC Barcelona in August 1973 following lengthy negotiations with his former club Ajax. In his first season, Cruyff exploded onto the scene; using his technical brilliance and intelligence to help Barça win the league in 1973-74 – the first time in 14 years.

    cruyff_movIn the eyes of the fans, they will always remember many images of the goal he scored against Athletico Madrid in Camp Nou and the famous 0-5 victory over Madrid in the Bernabeu in 1974, which will go down in history. Unfortunately his level dropped in the following seasons and Barça only won the King’s cup in 1977-78. Cruyff left the club in 1978.

    In 1988, he returned to the club as coach and put into motion the best era in the history of the club: winning 4 league titles among other and winning the European cup for the first time at Wembley in 1992 with the ‘Dream Team’. Cruyff then left the club in 1996.

    In 1999 he was chosen as best player of the century in Europe and in September 2006 he was awarded the cross of Saint Jordi from the Government of Catalonia.

    Re: Johan Cruyff

    Thats true. Cruyff is a big support for Laporta. Watching some of his moves while he was a player makes you wonder who of todays superstars could emulate him.

    Re: Johan Cruyff

    laporta is lawyer of him...

    i'd like to see him while he is playing but i couldnt see but i saw his coaching he is the best

    the players'd make training on the concrete ground for sense of balance

    cruyff says that:

    if u r a striker u should play in the defence in tranning cuzz u should understand defence players

    i have a lot of info about him ..

    Yup, he has a say in most of the important decesions. The latest being naming Guardiola as coach. Basically, Cruyff is Laporta´s unofficial advisor ..

    Yeah, I know, it`s just I haven`t heard anything about him since he criticized Messi. Maybe he got instructed by management to keep his mouth shut for a while

    Re: Johan Cruyff

    After he critisized Messi everyone was saying Cruyff is jealous and stuff. All he said was that Messi should play closer to the box so that if he does get fouled it could be a dangerous free kick or a penalty, but getting beaten up in the middle of the field is no good.

    Re: Johan Cruyff

    Cruyff doesnt need to be jealous of Messi! It`s ridiculous

    Re: Johan Cruyff

    If he was criticizing Messi`s positioning then he was actually pointing finger at Pep as I doubt Messi has such a free role to decide where he`ll stand on the pitch by himself. So that makes it even worse.
