Ajax 1982 - No.14 Cruyff.

After his spell in the USA and a short-lived stay at UD Levante in Spain, Cruyff returned to play in his homeland, rejoining Ajax on 30 November 1980 as "technical advisor" to Leo Beenhakker, but within a year he was back playing and led Ajax to the league title in 1982 and 83.

One notable incident from this era was a famous goal he scored against Helmond Sport in 1982. Ajax were awarded a penalty which Cruyff went to take but instead of shooting at goal, he nudged the ball sideways to his Ajax teammate Jesper Olsen who in return passed it back to Cruyff who tapped the ball into the empty net, as Otto Versfeld, the bemused Helmond goalkeeper, looked on.
