5. My Turn: Johan Cruyff
One should not miss reading about a person who had such a huge impact in shaping the modern game. Cruyff was probably the biggest philosopher in the game.
He based the foundation of the famous “Tiki-Taka” game-style, firm believer in simple football, he gave the vision of La Masia- the famosu football academy of Barcelona.
And nobody can deny that if he hadn’t been there for Barcelona, the golden generation might have never happened. There is a lot to speak about Cruyff and the words will always remain short.
Apart from being a great philosopher, he was one of the greatest players in the history of the game too, the deadly Cruyff turn has been exclusively named after him, and is often imitated by the footballers of the present.
So, if one wants to polish their footballing IQ, My Turn by Johan Cruyff is totally a perfect choice and could also change the way you always thought about this game.
