Johan Cruyff could be in FIFA 19 after Instagram posts asking what his rating should be for Ultimate Team Icon card

  • Instagram posts from Johan Cruyff’s account point to him being in FIFA 19
  • The posts ask what Cruyff’s ratings should be at three points in his career
  • FIFA has included classic players from football for a number of years now 











FIFA 18 has dozens of Icons, historic players who were at the top of their game, but right now, Dutch legend Johan Cruyff is nowhere to be found.

That looks set to change in FIFA 19 though, as three Instagram posts from Cruyff’s official account seem to confirm he’ll be in the next iteration of the game.

Cruyff passed away in 2016, however his Instagram account remains active as a tribute to his life and legacy.

The three pictures show Johan Cruyff in different stages of his career, and a FIFA Ultimate Team Icon card with his face and mystery stats has been edited onto each of them.

Icon cards in FIFA 18 have three different versions, each depicting how good the player was at three key stages of their career. 

‘If Johan were in FIFA, what would his rating be for the early years of his career (17-22)?’ The first Instagram post says. Cruyff spent his early career at Ajax, where he scored 190 goals in 240 games.

A second Instagram post shows Cruyff wearing the special FIFA Icon kit, and asks ‘If Johan were in FIFA, what would his rating be for the prime of his career (23-28)?’

The final post asks ‘If Johan were in FIFA, what would his rating be for the later years of his career (29-37)?’ The picture is of Cruyff in his Barcelona playing days, where he scored 48 goals in 143 games.

Cruyff then moved onto the Los Angeles Aztecs, Washington Diplomats, and Levante before a move back to Ajax. He finished his playing career at Feyenoord.

After he called time on playing football, he turned to managing, once again going back to Ajax, and then managing Barcelona and most recently the Catalonia national team, which is not affiliated with FIFA or UEFA.

Cruyff’s playing position changed throughout his career, and that’s reflected in the mock ups of the Ultimate Team Icon cards. He starts off as a striker, before moving to the centre forward position, and then he finished his career as a central attacking midfielder. 

The ‘Cruyff turn’ which the Dutchman brought to prominence is already a skill move you can perform in FIFA 18, so it makes sense that the man himself will be coming to the game very soon. 

He’s already available in Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, so it appears Cruyff is just another feature FIFA is set to take away from PES this year, including Neymar as a cover athlete, and the rights to the Champions League.
