Van Gaal, Depay On Cruyff Legend

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has called the late Johan Cruyff a "true legend" of football.
 
 
Van Gaal played alongside Cruyff at Ajax where both men had managerial spells. Cruyff went on to coach Barcelona where Van Gaal took over the reins from his compatriot in 1997.
 
"It is a very sad day for the footballing world, to lose one of the true legends of the game," Van Gaal said following Cruyff's passing on Thursday.
 
"My thoughts are with Johan's family at this difficult time."
 
Red Devils winger Memphis Depay also made a tribute to Cruyff's memory, sharing an anecdote which highlights the impact the man had on the beautiful game.
 
"Recently I heard someone say, 'When I'm abroad and tell people I'm from Holland, they say the country that's famous for its tulips and for Johan Cruyff.' That's something that will always remain the same," said the winger.
 
"A true legend, who's no longer with us. It's a sad day."
