The news just arrived that Johann Cruyff died on lung cancer today. With him leaves one of the best football players we had in the last 50 years. Today the world looks on Messi or Ronaldo but for me he was one of the completest players ever. I saw him in my younger days and was impressed of his elegance and his strategical way of playing. He was the one who made the golden days of Ajax Amsterdam and FC Barcelona. Remembering the world championship in Germany back in 1974 the best team was from Netherland not Germany. I always loved to see this team play like young and untamed horses on the playground lead by the great Johann Cruyff. He was not a person who was compensating, he always spoke the words he wanted to speak and not concerned in any other opinions. Football lost one of his greatest players of the last decades.
