Tribute to the Great Johan Cruijff | Rest in Peace, Legend

Soccer is simple, but it is difficult to play simple.
Every disadvantage has its advantage.
You have got to shoot, otherwise you can't score.

Football is a game of mistakes. Whoever makes the fewest mistakes wins.
I'm not religious. In Spain all 22 players make the sign of cross before they enter the pitch. If it works all matches must therefore end in a draw.
Sometimes something's got to happen before something is going to happen.
I look at Messi, and he makes me laugh. A beautiful footballer who is still like a kid. A world superstar, but still a kid. Innocent, you know. He just plays.
