Barcelona has gone a step higher in bringing their former players back to the team as they have brought back their former midfielder Jordi Cruyff. The club gave the former player a very “strategic role” in the club. He was appointed to be advising the club on football matters.
Jordi Cruyff Returns to Barcelona
Jordi Cruyff was played for the Spanish side between 1994 to 1996 and he is the son of one of the legends of the club Jonan Cruyff. The 47-year-old was happy with the appointment as he said: “This is a club that is very special for me and my family. The motivation is enormous. To come back is kind of like coming home”
Jordi Cruyff was managing a club side in the Chinese Super League side Shenzhen FC before he was given the appointment. He is the latest addition to the club after the signing of Brazilian right-back Emerson Royal from Real Betis. Speaking on his appointment, Barcelona said Cruyff’s arrival on 1 August is part of the new organisational structure being created at the Nou Camp by president Joan Laporta.
