Board: ‘Golden Child is gone'

Board: ‘Golden Child is gone'

Ajax’s Board of Directors has expressed sadness at Johan Cruijff’s passing away.

Johan Cruijff has passed away.  Our golden child is gone.  Defeated!  Johan Cruijff by his illness, and we are, by his passing.

This is a blow.  Our greatest and most famous golden child is no longer with us.  While we try to deal with this sad news, many moments go through our minds.  The brilliant football player who achieved so much success with Ajax.  The coach who, like nobody else, could make players and teams own his game.  The Ajax icon who always gave everything for his club and made sure that Ajax would be, and remain, the world’s best club.

The Board of Directors extends our condolences to his family and wishes them strength during this difficult time.
