I jumped like a crazy and gave us a spectacular embrace", rememora.

That the Real Sociedad deploy to day of today an elitist football of touch is, obviously, by the influence that Cruyff infligió on Eusebio: "Cruyff gave to the Barça a way to play to football and some only concepts that then anybody knew.
