๐ŸŠ Memphis Depay will be the latest in a long line of classy Dutchmen to play for Barcelona

FC Barcelona has a rich history of Dutch representation.

The iconic figure of Johan Cruyff was the origin of this special association between the Netherlands and one of Europe's superpower clubs.

Cruyff’s unique achievements as both a player and coach at Barcelona made him one of the most influential figures in the history of LaLiga, thanks to his revolutionary ideas on the game and his strength of personality in driving through that change. Incredible as it may seem today, Barça had not won a LaLiga title for 13 years when he first arrived at the Camp Nou as a player with the 1973-74 season having already started.
