Pep is right to quit, says Cruyff

Johan Cruyff believes Pep Guardiola has made the right decision to walk away from Barcelona at the end the season.

Guardiola (41) last week announced he would not be renewing his contract at the Nou Camp, despite being the most successful coach the club has ever had with 13 trophies won during his four-year tenure.

When asked whether he agreed with Guardiola’s choice to leave, Cruyff — was Barca manager between 1988 and 1996 — told Marca: “I think it’s good because it is a consuming task.

Work has been done extremely well and it takes strength to continue, especially in a very difficult time because there are changes.”
