Liverpool Are Taking Heaps Of Abuse For Their Questionable Johan Cruyff Tribute

Liverpool Are Taking Heaps Of Abuse For Their Questionable Johan Cruyff Tribute
By Conor Neville Updated

The folk behind the Liverpool Football Club twitter account have been heavily criticised this afternoon following their rather self-glorifying tweet on the death of Johan Cruyff.

The death of the great man - there is a case to be made that he is the greatest footballer ever to die - has provoked a wave of heartfelt tributes from today's professionals. Encomia are flying in from all across the football world.

The twitter accounts of the world's grandest football clubs have all chipped in.

Most have attested to Cruyff's peerless artistry as a footballer, his seismic influence on the game, his charisma, his stunning performances for Ajax, Barcelona and Holland, his magnificent achievements as a manager...

Liverpool's tweet, on the other hand, was keen to remind us how much Cruyff thought of Liverpool.

The tweet appears to have given ammunition to the large body of (mostly Manchester United) fans on twitter who believe that Liverpool is a club drowning in solipsism.

You understand it's not us saying this. Just what everyone else is saying.
