Ajax 1972 - No.14 Cruyff.

1972 was a particularly successful year for Ajax and Cruyff. The Dutch club won a second European Cup, beating Internazionale 2–0 in the final, with Cruyff scoring both goals. This victory prompted Dutch newspapers to announce the demise of Catenaccio, the traditional Italian style of defensive football in the face of the new wave and overwhelming 'Total Football'.

At the beginning of the 1970–71 season, Cruyff had suffered a long-term groin injury. He made his comeback on in October 1970 against PSV. In this game, he did not wear his usual number 9, which was in use by Gerrie Mühren, but instead used number 14. Although it was very uncommon in those days for the starters of a game not to play with numbers 1 to 11, from that moment onwards, Cruyff's number was 14, even using the number with the Dutch national team.
