Ajax’s management, Board of Directors, players, staff and employees are all in deep shock after the sudden passing away of Johan Cruijff, the greatest Ajacied of all time.
Director Edwin van der Sar: “Johan meant so much to our club. He brought many successes to Ajax. Even after his career as a player ended, Johan remained closely involved with the club. He always wanted the best for Ajax, the best for football. From the youth players to the first team. We were shocked when we learned of his lung cancer last October. Having to say goodbye to him so soon after that has brought us into mourning. We will miss Johan very much.”
Ajax extends our deepest condolences to Johan Cruijff’s family and loved ones in this difficult time.
