Johan Cryuff, the Dutch legend, has agreed to coach Catalonia for nothing.

Former Netherlands international Johan Cruyff has been named coach of Catalonia, the autonomous Spanish community’s soccer federation (FCF) said on Monday.

The 62-year-old Cruyff, who will not receive any payment, will be presented to the media on Nov. 9 and will also work with the federation on sporting and social projects, according to FCF president Jordi Casals.
“It’s a role that has no remuneration and I thank him very much and I think Catalan soccer and Catalonia should feel proud,” Casals was quoted as saying in the Spanish media.
