Video: Enjoy the most famous turn in football… RIP Johan Cruyff

Another football legend has sadly passed away today.

Johan Cruyff, one of the greatest players to ever grace European football, lost his fight with cancer aged 68.

The Dutchman lit up World Cups, European Championships and dominated club football with Ajax and Barcelona throughout the 1960s and 1970s – winning three Ballon d’Ors and a plethora of league titles and European Cups.

To this day, he’s the only player with a turn named after him.

Fans refer to the ‘Cruyff turn’ to this day, but the man’s influence on the way modern teams play is actually a far huger legacy.

For now though, just enjoy the beauty of it.
