Johah Cruyff, " I let all youth teams play the same way, like the first team. I always put the emphasis on learning. Sometimes I had the suspicion the youth coaches were more concerned with winning. They cared more about their own reputation.
I cared only about the interest of the club. When a player with talent couldn't defend I put him in defense so he could learn, but that could cost a point. But I didn't care, I was busy developing the player. "
