Johan Cruyff was one of the greatest players in football history. Throughout his career he was synonymous with Total Football and his philosophy of the game is the stuff of legend.
In My Turn, Cruyff tells the story of his life, from street football in Amsterdam to signing for Ajax aged ten, where he won three European Cups before moving to Barcelona in 1973 for a world-record fee. There he won La Liga in his first season, and was named European Footballer of the Year. In total he won the Ballon d'Or three times, and led the Dutch national team to the final of the 1974 World Cup.
After retiring in 1984, he became a hugely successful manager of Ajax and then Barcelona, leading the Catalan giants to their first European Cup. In 1999, Cruyff was voted European Player of the Century, and came second behind Pele in the World Player of the Century poll. After he retired, he set up the Cruyff Foundation and dedicated his life to giving children a chance to enjoy sport. While on the field and in the dugout Cruyff was in total control, yet away from the game his life was more turbulent, including a kidnapping attempt and bankruptcy, and here he discusses it all with his trademark wit and honesty.
Cruyff s death in March 2016 brought world football to a standstill, and generated an unprecedented outpouring of emotion. Johan Cruyff was a brilliant teacher and outspoken analyst of the game he loved and changed forever. My Turn is the full story of his incredible legacy.
