202 – I don't know how many mothers wrote me a letter asking me to cut my hair short so their son would get a haircut too.
203 – I bought a car with the first money I earned as a player. In my contract was a rule that I had to be home be for a certain time. Sometimes someone from Ajax came to check if I was at home. Rinus Michels once drove past when my brother was driving somewhere with the car. He demanded an explanation, buy my mom responded indignant. I was already in bed. From that point, it became a sport to park the car somewhere else and get home unseen, so that Ajax's spies would waste hours waiting for me to get home.
204 – My brother Henny played at amateur level. He once got sent off after he had made a foul and the referee asked for his name. When he replied with 'Cruyff', the referee thought he was ridiculed, got angry and sent Henny off.
205 – Of the 100 people I meet, 99.5 come to get something. Nobody brings me something. And I don't mean money.
206 – I could never work for AS Roma. They have an athletics track around the field. The worst thing there is.
207 – I'm not religious. In Spain all 22 players make the sign of the cross before they enter the pitch. If it works all matches must therefore end in a draw.
208 – In Barcelona we had someone for your feet, how do you call that, a pede..pedo..something…lets just say we had a pedophile in the dressing room. No problem, cause we only had adult men there. Anyway…
211 – The current shirt of Holland's national team is wrong. The colour is too faint. The orange must be aggressive. Holland should play in a super bright orange. The crowd should have to blink their eyes as soon as the players enter the pitch.
212 – When I get home after doing analysis for TV, my wife asks: What did you say? I respond: No clue whatsoever.
213 – The chances Holland created, Holland created. And the chances Brazil created, well, Holland created half of them too.
