The supporters movement lay a floral tribute in the space located in the main grandstand, where thousands of people have passed over the last few days, including some of the most important figures in Catalan sport and institutions.
Statement by Antoni Guil, president of the World Confederation of FC Barcelona Penyes:
“We must perpetuate the legacy that has been left by Johan to Bará supporters and those who love football”
“The supporters movement has grown thanks to footballers and people like Johan Cruyff”
