The Catalan television TV3 broadcasted on Tuesday: "The last match. 40 years of Cruyff in Catalunya"

“The last match. 40 years of Johan Cruyff in Catalunya" –  this is the title of the programme broadcasted on Tuesday night by the Catalan state television TV3. These are the best quotes of the show.

Johan Cruyff

  • "Ajax had sold me to Madrid, but I don't accept commands. Barça didn't have anything, if we speak about football, so it was a challenge to play at the club that represented Catalunya. More than a club."
  • "The problem is that the Catalans can't decide by themselves."
  • "You always need to play football in an attractive way. It has to be a show."
  • "You can't shut up a very important player."
  • "The worst defect of Catalans is not going 100% for a thing... because.. what if it doesn't work?”
  • "It's incredible that some people don't speak well of Guardiola, what all he has done..."

Pep Guardiola

  • "He made us love this way of playing."
  • "Without him we wouldn't have lived what we have to. I am sure."
  • "Barça needs to be eternally thankful to him."

Xavier Hernandez

  • "All of this, playing well and winning, it's his fault"
  • "People like Cruyff or Guardiola... only with your presence you transmit something"
