BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Fans mourning the death of Johan Cruyff are paying their respects to the former player and coach at a temporary memorial in Barcelona’s Camp Nou Stadium.
Attendees can sign a book of condolences and file past a large photo of the Dutch legend inside the stadium lobby. The photo is flanked by the club’s and Catalonia’s flags and rose bouquets.
Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu inaugurated the memorial Saturday morning for the “maestro” who “changed our club.” It will remain open through Tuesday, when Barcelona’s players will attend after returning from international competition.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and Catalonia’s regional president paid their respects along with hundreds of fans.
Bartomeu says that the book of condolences will be given to Cruyff’s family.
Cruyff died Thursday of lung cancer.
