This week saw not only saw what would have been Johan Cruyff‘s 70th birthday, but also the owners of the Amsterdam Arena deciding to forego selling the naming rights for the foreseeable future as Ajax’s stadium will now be officially known as the Johan Cruyff Arena, in tribute to the Dutch legend.

The Dutch forward, widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest players, spent 11 years at Ajax during two spells, and also managed the club for three years from 1985. In his first spell as a player with Ajax he won six domestic league titles and three European Cups. Cruyff died on 24 March 2016 following a battle with lung cancer.
