This stunning Johan Cruyff tribute by Ajax fans will give you goosebumps

Barcelona paid due tribute to their late club legend Johan Cruyff in many ways on Saturday during El Clasico. They wore special kits and put together this amazing video. It was a fitting day to honor such a iconic figure of the Blaugrana.

Cruyff also played for several other clubs in his incomparable career. The only club he spent more time at in his playing days was his first ever club, Ajax. The famous Dutch club was the one to give him his start in the sport in 1964. He scored an astonishing 190 goals for them in 10 years of service before heading to Barcelona.

Ajax paid their own tribute to Cruyff on Sunday. The supporters of the club began the extravagant tribute by marching from the club's former home, the De Meer Stadion to their current home, ArenA.

Once inside the stadium, before the club's Eredivisie match against FC Zwolle, the 51,000 in attendance all participated in a coordinated tifo in tribute to Cruyff and also serenaded the fallen legend with a rousing rendition of a Dutch song that translates to "Blood, Sweat, and Tears".

"Bloed, zweet en tranen" is a song performed by Dutch singer Andre Hazes. Its meaning perfectly sums up the phenomenal Johan Cruyff as a player, manager, and man. This tribute by the Ajax fans is simply breath-taking.
