Homenaje a Johan Cruyff en el Camp Nou

Jordi Cruyff gave a speech in the press room at the Camp Nou in which he thanked everybody for their support in recent days. Johan Cruyff’s son began and ended his speech with the same words: «Johan isn’t just ours; he belongs a little bit to everyone.» Jordi thanked Doctor Tramullas and the nurses who had looked after his father for the treatment and care given and for the positive feeelings they had passed on to him.

Currently the football director at Maccabi Tel Aviv, Jordi also thanked the press «for the respect they have shown since the moment he fell ill until now, because privacy is what you most want at a time like this.»

Jordi was also thankful to FC Barcelona for the way in which the club had handled the whole question: «Thank you for allowing us access to the club facilities and for planning events in agreement at all times with the family. With Barcelona there has always been a good feeling and relationship, mutual affection and respect and recently there was a final embrace between the club and Johan Cruyff. The foundation, and the needy kids who benefitted from it, were always the apple of my father’s eye. He was very proud of this final agreement [between the Cruyff and FC Barcelona foundations], and that was his final signature, the one that gave him peace.»

«It is incredible that my father has had such an effect on everybody, not just on people connected with football. As a family, we are very proud of the reaction people have had. Barça, Ajax and Holland have always been his footballing loves and it is wonderful to see how they have all responded in a way that corresponds to the love my father had for them» Jordi Cruyff ended.
