Barcelona Cruyff Tribute for El Clasico

Barcelona will pay further tribute to Johan Cruyff by wearing a shirt with the words ‘Gràcies Johan’ on their shirts for Saturday’s clásico against Real Madrid.

A mosaic with the same slogan will also be displayed by supporters across all four sides of Camp Nou before kick-off, while a minute’s silence and a video of Cruyff’s best moments will be played prior to the La Liga fixture.

Cruyff, a three-time world player of the year and pioneer of total football, died last week at the age of 68 having been diagnosed with lung cancer in October.

Barça lead third-placed Real by 10 points and could extend their unbeaten run to 40 games.

Atlético are currently second, nine points behind Luis Enrique’s team, and travel to the Camp Nou on Tuesday for the first leg of a Champions League quarter-final.
