After the death of football icon Johan Cruyff, Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink has paid tribute to his friend.
Speaking the clubs Official Website Hiddink said “I received the news of Johan’s death with immense sadness. Firstly, I have lost a friend. I knew Johan well for many years and we spent time together in both the Netherlands and Spain.
‘Johan was a great man and always made sure he remained approachable to many people. His influence on the game, both as a player and a coach, cannot be overstated. We will miss him very much, but football will forever be indebted to his genius. What he taught us about the game is still as relevant now as it was 40 years ago.
‘My thoughts are with his wife Danny and his family at this very sad time.’
