Johan Cruyff’s health foundation would only confirm to Dutch media that the 68-year-old is suffering health problems, but are set to release a statement later on Thursday morning.

Cruyff suffered from heart problems when he was Barcelona coach in 1991 and had to undergo surgery. The former Netherlands and Ajax great then gave up smoking immediately.
