Learning from the best

Post  Nostalgic on 2016-03-28, 7:33 am

The recent sad death of Johann Cryuff got me to thinking about football connections and how some people learn things and want to carry them on. Cruyff was managed by Rinus Michels, an old fashioned disciplinarian, both at cub and international level. and through Michel's commitment to total football Ajax won three European Cup's, and Holland reached the 1974 WC final with him in charge, all the time playing with a style that no-one could copy or match. He was also in charge when Holland won the 1988 Euros.

He went to Barca and took Cruyff with him and improved them tremendously, but his methods and teachings were passed on through Cruyff when he took over at Barcelona and a young Pep Guardiola was one of his regulars. Guardiola took over at youth level and nurtured the Barcelona players into the team that has dominated over the past 10 years and the Spanish won their only WC with a high contingent of Barca players.

Michels-Cruyff-Guardiola connection created a footballing dynasty albeit with different clubs and nations, but what shines through is that they are similar characters with a love of football and how it should be played. I,m just glad I was around to experience and see it.
