I couldn't believe it, as soon as I got the letter I knew who it was from. It was one and a half years after my last managerial position and a long time since I had managed and played at the team but there it was, right in front of my eyes.
A reply from my favourite club to me, Ajax, after sacking their last manager,De Boer, had asked me to take over and return the club to the years where I was playing, the years when Total Football was invented and played,the years where football was enjoyed, the years where the Dutch team played the best and I was at the heart of it.
I played for them, scored goals for them and managed them.I won them trophies, breathed for them and lived for them. I then moved to my second favourite team and then became the most successful manager in their history before my former pupil and maybe the best manager in the world right now overtook me.
Ajax are famous for their youth academy the likes that me, Marco Van Baton and Edwin Van Der Sar all came thorough. My task is to restore them to the top with the coming youngsters, all of which I have heard are very good.Who am I you may wonder? I am the most graceful footballer to ever walk on a pitch, my vision was unmatched and my turn was the best. I am Johan Cruyff
