RIP Johan Cruyff

Sharing is caring!

I hate Ajax let me be clear, but today they lost their Jinky. Johan Cruyff passed away today at age 68, I remember him from his time as Barcelona manager in the early 90’s, i was too young to have ever seen him play. A man who with Maradona, Pele, Puskás and Messi are arguably the finest footballers in the games history, is a massive loss to the beautiful game.

Cruyff won 3 consecutive European Cups from 1971 to 1973 including knocking Celtic out of the Quarter Final in 1971 on aggregate 3-1. This man who locked horns with our greatest ever team which was led by the iconic Jock Stein, will be mourned by football fans around the world, but in particular our arch enemies at Ajax. But today is not a day to mock the dead, that is not the Celtic Way. May Johan Cruyff rest in peace, condolences to his family, Holland and to Ajax. YNWA.
