De Jong speaks about his vision of Cruyff's legacy
- The Dutchman names Johan as one of the best football players in history.
- Frenkie supposes that no other player has improved football technically the way Cruyff did.
"I think that Cruyff had an amazing impact on football, especially at Ajax and Barcelona. I think he was one of the best in history. No player had so much impact on the game technically, so he's a very special person," tells the 22-year-old to Sport in his latest interview.
To the question of how did he first know about Cruyff and his football, Frenkie answered: "A lot of people told me about him. His attitude was really good for the game but the stories I've heard about him are amazing."
Johan Cruyff played a huge part in Blaugrana history. He spent five years at Barcelona as a player - between 1973 and 1978. During this time, he made 139 league appearances for the Catalans and scored 47 goals.
