Reactions give me lot of energy

Nov 23, 2015

"Everything is organised to fight my illness", Johan Cruyff writes in his weekly column in 'De Telegraaf' newspaper. " First of all, all the reactions have given me a lot of energy. And I have felt that energy really going through my body."

"There is a doctor who treats me and who is in direct contact with specialists in Amsterdam and London. He also has a short line tof communcation to an oncologist who is specialised in alternative medicine. He can see what the stuff that enters my body is destroying and what vitamins and medication is needed to repair the damage. Especially based on vitamins and fruit. And then there is the family doctor who is checking up on me all the time and who is coordinating everything. He translates all their findings back to me."

"And so, with a few good people, the organisation to fight my illness is all set up."

"If I look at Ajax then where Wijers, Van Wijk, Van Duivenbode, Collee and Henrichs sent someone like Wim Jonk away because he is considered to be a difficult guy, than it is clear that I would never solve my problems that way. It says a lot that I have already been approached about Jonk by four clubs. They are interested in someone who is showing some balls. Someone who stands for something."

"And that is why it is a sign of weakness when firing someone like that is the only solution you can think of."

I quit

"For years and years now I see that the essential points of my vision are being ignored at Ajax", Johan Cruyff writes in his weekly column in 'De Telegraaf' newspaper. "Furthermore I have the feeling that this is happening deliberately. And I don't want to play games."

No one takes care of business

"Despite the fact that Feyenoord-Ajax was a real match, it gave no reason to look away from the real issues. And no one takes care of business," Johan Cruyff writes in his weekly column in 'De Telegraaf'.
