2016 has brought yet more devastating news, as the passing of Johan Cruyff has been announced on his official website.

What a career he had. Three Ballon d'Or awards. 190 goals in 240 games for Ajax. 4 consecutive league titles as Barcelona manager.

Jamie Carragher one of those to share their early condolences. Sure he's thankful he never had to mark Cruyff.

This moment of magic from Cruyff will live long in the memory.

The man literally had it all. One of the very few to make it both as a player and as a manager.

Barcelona's success today owes a lot to Cruyff. They've also paid tribute to him the afternoon.

Ian Rush another one of the many, many footballing figures to pay tribute to the legend that is Cruyff.

"Playing football is very simple, but playing simple football is the hardest thing there is." RIP Johan Cruyff.

Davy Klassen, current captain at Ajax, pays his tributes. Cruyff won 19 trophies as a player at Ajax.

Johan played beautiful football, entertaining millions around the world as he did it. A player. A manager. A legend. Rest in Peace Johan.
