My Turn: The Autobiography (Hardback)

Johan Cruyff

-  

The footballing world was shocked and saddened by the death of Dutch legend Johan Cruyff in March this year. Widely regarded as one of the best players of all time, he inspired the likes of Ajax, Barcelona and the Netherlands to glory.

In his autobiography, My Turn, Johan tells the story of a truly unbelievable sporting career. A player who was synonymous with total football, he helped change the way teams played football and inspired players to break the shackles of convention and play in any position on the pitch. He talks about starting out at Ajax, where he won eight national titles and three European Cups, before moving on to Barcelona, where he quickly won La Liga.

As well as club success, he also won many individual awards and inspired his country to a World Cup final appearance in 1974. While his playing career went from strength to strength, his off-the-field life was more turbulent - he encountered bankruptcy and was even the victim of a kidnapping attempt. He then followed this up with a trophy-laden managerial career. This is his story in his own words.
