Cruijff Salary & Net Worth

How much did Johan Cruijff earn?

Johan Cruijff has a net worth of...

20 Million Euro's (18 Million Dollars)

He was already a legend in Amsterdam and by far the highest paid player in the Dutch Eredivisie. His transfer from AFC Ajax to FC Barcelona made him the most expensive football player in the world at that moment (1973). In Barcelona he became a global icon and his wealth grew significantly. Even though he never earned the wages he was used to in Spain, he always assured that his brand was impeccable and thus he remained a very wealthy individual even after his career. His endorsement deals were nothing to sneeze at. The legend showed up in commercials for Marlboro and Chupa Chups, among others. This netted him huge amounts of cash. His net worth at the time of his death is assumed to be roughly 20 Million Euro's (18 Million Dollars).

He had two daughters, but they were actually very shy. They never looked to be in the spotlights and thus this sighting of Susila is extremely rare. She went on TV to promote her fathers foundation and actually admitted that she hates the spotlight. Cute. (Image: Imgur)
