Balanced research and practice
Johan Cruyff received virtually infinite praise towards the end of his life. It was said that he, singlehandedly, both renewed and professionalized football. He was also considered to be the driving force behind many successes of Ajax, Barcelona, and both national teams of The Netherlands and Spain. However, during his lifetime, not all commentaries were that positive, leading to the grand question of what it means to be more talented or gifted than most of those around you.
