What would the team-type of Johan Cruyff look like? Considered one of the best players in the history of football, the Dutchman, who died in March 2016, left some notes in which he tackles the famous subject of the ideal eleven. An exercise that is always difficult as the periods follow but do not look alike. As a move, the triple gold ball in the 70 years had given itself to not to integrate the players still in business. No Lionel Messi, no Cristiano Ronaldo! In addition to being an extraordinary player, it would seem that the “Flying Dutchman” was modest since he did not include himself in his “Dream Team”. This is not the case for all the former players who lend themselves to this little game.
In short, here is the team that would have broken everything on its way to the former N ° 14 of Barça and the Netherlands: Lev Yashin-Carlos Alberto, Beckenbauer, Pep Guardiola, Ruud Krol-Alfredo di Stéfano, Bobby Charlton, Garrincha-Maradona, Pelé, Piet Keizer. Of course, no way to touch his classic 4-3-3! The most “recent” player is therefore Pep Guardiola, which he directed in Barcelona for the first victory of the club in the Champions League in 1992. For the rest, one feels the Dutch paw (Krol, Keizer) and one wonders whether Maradona and Pelé would have agreed on the same team. But we have to find out she’s got a face!
