Johan Cruyff spoke this Tuesday at Forum Samitier about Barcelona and the Champions League. He also gave his opinions on Sep Blatter's resignation as FIFA president. 

The final

  • "This team can score a goal at anytime".
  • "Juventus is a very difficult team to play against. Pirlo is maybe on of the quickest players in execution. He's capable of making a 30-40 metres pass and put the ball wherever he wants".

Leo Messi

  • "Defending Messi is really difficult because his steps are short and the defender's ones are long".
  • "When Messi arrived, it seemed like two big players in the dressing-room.. However, they put Messi in first place with any doubt and everyone accepted this. While Messi continues like this, nobody will doubt he's the best".

1992

  • "Winning the first Champions League meant something different for the club".
  • "The way of playing was also the key".

Italian teams

  • "Very difficult to play against. It's always been difficult to play against Italian teams".

Luis Enrique's Barça

  • "I am happy with it. Luis Enrique comes from an individual sport and prepares very good phyisically. He achieved that all the players are fully fit at the end of the season. It's something important". s

Xavi Hernández

  • "Xavi makes football easy. He's one of the best players I have ever seen".

Blatter's goodbye

  • "How is it possible that somebody runs for president and four days later disappears? I don't know why he's going but.. who's coming now?"
