Johan Cruijff to train again – in Catalonia

Johan Cruijff is to return to the dug-out for the first time since 1996, as trainer of the Catalonia football team, the AD reports on Monday.

Catalonia’s football team is not allowed to take part in official tournaments and usually plays just one match a year – a friendly against a significant opponent, the paper says.
Cruijff’s son Jordi has turned out for the Catalonia side.
