The club announce the tributes to Cruyff one year after his death

Johan Cruyff. This is going to be the name of the new stadium being built in Barcelona's Sport City. It has been announced this weekend by the club's president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

"Cruyff showed us that we can do everything we can imagine", said the president, who also announced the intention of the club of changing the Camp Nou's street name "Aristideis Maillol", by the name of Johan Cruyff. 

Jordi Cruyff, who was in the event, said: "It's not easy to speak in moments like this. Yesterday was a difficult day for my family, but the reaction of the world made it a proud day".

The Cruyff family gave Johan's Golden Ball and a shirt used by the legend to be exposed in the club's museum.
