FC Barcelona – La Liga: Jordi Cruyff: Knowing Barcelona so well will help me in my work


Jordi Cruyff has spoken about his return to Barcelona, 25 years since he left the club.

He has been announced as Joan Laporta‘s new sporting advisor at the Blaugrana and is excited to be back.

“I left the club 25 years ago and it’s been a long track record since then, it’s like coming home,” he told Barcelona‘s club media channels.

“I also know this place very well and that will help me in my work.

“The motivation is enormous. This is a very special club for me and my family. It gives me immense pride to be here and I’ll give my all to help the team and the club.

“My father was very close to two clubs, and one of them was Barcelona. I grew up here and it’s very clear to everyone the link between my family and Barcelona. I’d like to be Johan Cruyff, but people already know he’s immortal. I can help in many ways because, when you’ve been on many continents, you face many problems which prepare you to come to a club like this.”

Looking ahead, Jordi Cruyff discussed his objectives for the coming seasons.

“Now I have to arrive here and integrate, there’s a lot of work to do,” he said.

“I’ve been to a lot of different places and had different experiences with different problems and my intention is to now come here and help and work with everyone who’s here.”

He also took a moment to reflect on his experience in China and thank Shenzhen, the club he has just left.

“I’m very grateful to Shenzhen, they looked after me very well,” Jordi Cruyff said.

“They’re going to be one of the best clubs in the Chinese league and have been very understanding that this is my dream to come here. Barcelona is the only club I’d have got on a plane and left for.”
