Chelsea, Bayern & PSG to join Barcelona in Cruyff tribute

Former players from Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid will meet a Barcelona Dream Team XI later this year to pay tribute to the club's former player and coach Johan Cruyff.

The game will take place November 14 to mark the 40th anniversary of Barca's famous 5-0 win at Real Madrid, when Cruyff scored one of the goals and was instrumental as the Catalans ran riot at the Santiago Bernabeu.

That game was played on February 17, but the tribute will go ahead later this year and was announced in Sitges on Friday.

The event is being organized by the Fundació Veteranos Sitges (FVS) and all funds raised will go to the Johan Cruyff Foundation.

Barca's Dream Team XI will wear a replica of Cruyff's Netherlands shirt from the 1974 World Cup and the Blaugrana side will feature club legends Jose Ramon Alexanco and Jose Mari Bakero.

Alexanco and former Dream Team teammate Eusebio (currently Barca B coach) attended the event in the coastal town on Friday.

The All-Star side will also feature former pros from Boca Juniors, Corinthians, Espanyol, Real Sociedad and Barca themselves.
