Nessun Dorma 80s & 90s Football Podcast / ND Extra Time: Cruyff at Feyenoord

Listen on

Episode notes

In 1983, Ajax decided not to renew the contract of Johan Cruyff, reasoning he was past it at the age of 36. So Cruyff, in the highest possible dudgeon, signed for their bitter rivals Feyenoord – and then won the Double with them, despite an 8-2 defeat at Ajax along the way.  Rob talks to Andy Bollen, author of Fierce Genius, about that extraordinary final season and what it tells us about one of the greatest footballers of all time.
