Summary
Described as 'the European Pele', Johan Cruyff is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in football history. Throughout his playing career, he was synonymous with 'total football', a style of play in which every player could play in any position on the pitch. Today, his philosophy lives on in teams across Europe, from Barcelona to Bayern Munich and players from Lionel Messi to Cesc Fabrecas. 'My Turn' tells the story of Cruyff's life, starting at Ajax where he won eight national titles and three European Cups before moving to Barcelona where he won La Liga in his first season in 1973, and was named European Footballer of the Year. He won the Ballon d'Or three times, and led the Dutch national team to the final of the 1974 World Cup, famously losing to West Germany
