R.I.P. Johan Cruyff

The soccer world lost Dutch player and coach Johan Cruyff to cancer today. He was one of the most influential figures in the game, and many of your kids know his name. We teach a ball move that he made famous - the Cruyff turn.

Johan Cruyff was influential, outspoken, controversial. His quotes are legendary:

“Playing football is very simple, but playing simple football is the hardest thing there is.”
“You play football with your head, and your legs are there to help you.” 

His influence extends far beyond his native Netherlands.
