Cruyff linked with sensational Barcelona return

Johan Cruyff is being linked with a sensational return to Barcelona.

AS says Barca's 0-0 draw at Osasuna sparked a meeting among directors where coach Frank Rijkaard's position was discussed.

During the secret talks, the option was raised that should Rijkaard be dismissed, Barca would appoint coach Jose Ramon Alexanco as the Dutchman's replacement, with Cruyff returning in a more hands-on role.

The former Barca coach has acted as unofficial advisor to president Joan Laporta, but could make a sensational return should results not pick up for Rijkaard.

Despite last night's superb 3-0 defeat of Lyon, Barca still have big games in the Liga coming up with Sevilla and Real Zaragoza next.
