Cruyff won almost everything with the Catalan club as both as a player and as manager, while he also had a profound impact on the playing style of the club.

Barcelona also considered other options of paying homage to their former great including erecting his statue at the entrance gate, retiring the number 14 all together and chanting his name during the 14th minute of every home game.

Barcelona directors will meet on Tuesday to discuss the initiatives but Jordi Cruyff has already met with the club to assess the situation.
