Cruyff tribute

In the rush to pay tribute to the former Ajax and Barcelona legend after his death on Thuresday, the Manchester United midfielder got all muddled on social media and made this mistake.

It was quickly pointed out to the Frenchman the error of his ways.

He wasn’t the only one either to make a basic error of identification, as the Guardian newspaper’s back page also got their Dutch players mixed up.
