Netherlands footballing great Johan Cruyff has died of cancer aged 68.

Cruyff, who made his name as a forward with Ajax and Barcelona, won the Ballon d'Or three times.

Regarded as one the greatest players of all time, he won three consecutive European Cups with Ajax and went on to manage Barcelona to their first European Cup triumph in 1992.

Barcelona won four consecutive La Liga titles from 1990-91 to 1993-94 under his guidance.


A true legend. :rip:

Fir Extinguishers, hopefully this can fill you with some pride, albeit tinged still with sadness, but Radio 1 in the UK who's target demographic is 16 to 24 played video of Cruyff to passers by, all of whom identified him, I think because of his turn or his number! The player was a legend, the man apparently so too, given his influence on both Ajax and Barcelona! R.I P Johan, gone too soon to that f***er cancer!

Maybe you even don't get fully how important he was for the netherlands .
He was by far the most known dutchman on earth , no joking.
Where ever on earth say you are from holland and the answer will be "ah cruyff".
We didn't have the beatles but we didn't mind we had cruyff.
