The blue may get a draw at Camp Nou, says Johan Cruyff

Europe's best footballer of the 20th century Johan Cruyff was born on April 25, 1947 in Amsterdam. He played for Ajax in 1964-1973 and 1981-1983. He spent five years at Camp Nou - 1973-1978. He won the UEFA European Cup tournament 1971-1973, the Intercontinental Cup and the UEFA Super Cup in 1972. In his career he has won almost all football titles as both a coach and footballer.

Interview by Kamen Totev
Don Balon BG Magazine

- Hello, Mr. Cruyff! I hope you haven't forgotten that exactly thirty years ago FC Barcelona played against Levski Sofia.

- I haven't forgotten anything linked to my football life. I clearly remember the match against Levski. In the first leg we won 4-0 at Camp Nou, but we lost 5-4 in Sofia.
 - Levski had already eliminated Ajax.

-this in mind, we were very determined and concentrated in the first match and we took a good advantage.

- What do you remember of the return match in Sofia?

- After the comfortable advantage we took at home, we were more than relaxed in Sofia, because we thought we had done our job. In fact, however, it we a thrilling match and this 5-4 score fully satisfied the fans.

- Is there any other team in your career of a footballer and coach, who have scored five goals to your team?

- When I was coach of FC Barcelona Real Madrid defeated us 5-0 or 5-1 I fancy it was. No other team but Real Madrid and Levski have scored so many goals against me.

- Is it possible for FC Levski to surprise the world at Camp Nou on Tuesday?

- I can hardly say there will be some major surprise at the stadium. I know Levski are strong team with good tactical discipline. I think Levski has some chance to get a draw with a good portion of luck. On the other hand, such a score will be regarded by Barcelona as a failure. Given the fantastic selection of Barcelona, I think Levski could hardly hope for a victory.
