My Turn, the Johan Cruyff autobiography, will be published later this year

Today would have marked the Dutch master’s 69th birthday.

JOHAN CRUYFF’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY, My Turn, will be published posthumously later this year.

The Dutch master, widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential figures in football history, died last month following a battle with cancer.

Today would have marked Cruyff’s 69th birthday, and publishers Pan Macmillan released the cover for the book which is set to hit shelves on 6 October.

My Turn “will tell the full story of Cruyff’s unparalleled career and the philosophy that shaped not only his game but that of generations of footballers, managers and the fans who followed them,” they said.
