Johan Cruyff: “You can only learn from your mistakes”

Johan Cruyff - Johan Cruyff Institute

“Football you do with your eyes, with your head, but you use your foot. So your eyes are the most important thing as a manager: you must see what somebody does, you must see if somebody makes a mistake”

Cruyff explained to sport management students at the Johan Cruyff Institute. “If you can learn from your mistakes, then I think you’re a great manager, like when you’re a coach. Try to do it, if it fails, okay, try something else. Don’t be afraid to do it”.
