Johan Cruyff states he wants Ajax to experience much like Bayern Munich and Barcelona later on.
Holland great has recognized the way Pep Guardiola has quickly implemented his passing philosophy in the club
Holland legend was the star from the famous Ajax side from the 1970s, whose ‘Total Football’ philosophy took it’s origin from possession and ale players to experience in multiple positions.
Both Bayern and Barca have performed inside a similar style under coach Pep Guardiola and Cruyff has recognized the 44-year-old for his success in applying his system at both clubs.
“The truth that the Spanish people have learnt this kind of play within two seasons with Guardiola shows that it may be trained,” he stated to De Telegraaf.
“This really is the direction that you want to pursue with Ajax. It is a system that emphasises dominance of possession and attacking football.”
Bayern and Barcelona face each other within the first leg of the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night as Guardiola faces the Catalans the very first time since departing the club this year.
Cruyff, who had been a Barcelona player before spending eight years in control between 1988 and 1996, coached Guardiola throughout his amount of time in charge at Camp Nou.
