- Story Text: Barcelona unveiled on Monday (August 26) a statue of Dutch former player and coach Johan Cruyff at the esplanade of the Camp Nou stadium.
Johan's son, Jordi Cruyff, said the Camp Nou was the right location for the statue due to the special place it held for his father as a coach and player.
Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu praised Cruyff's legacy at the Catalan club and in modern football.
The statue of Cruyff will join the sculptures of club legends Ladislao Kubala and Francisco Miro Sans outside the stadium.
Barca will also name their new second team stadium with the name of the Dutchman which will be inaugurated on Tuesday (August 27).
