Sandro Rosell and Johan Cruyff may have well-publicized disagreements and different points of view, but the great Dutchman has supported the appointment of Tito Vilanova as the next head coach of FC Barcelona.
Despite initially stating that he is not certain if the departure of Pep Guardiola will mark the end a special era, as only in years to come with the results and trophies can the four-year reign be judged, Cruyff gave his vote of approval to Barca’s new manager. “Barca has a different [football] philosophy to which other coaches refer to,” said Cruyff. ”Coaches are not the most important choice, those are the players, as they are the ones that play, that win and lose. But, the coach does need to see football in the same way [as the players]. Because of this Tito Vilanova, if he wants to try, could be an excellent solution for the bench of FC Barcelona.”
