Cruyff wrote in the Daily Mail: "Roberto Martinez is a good friend of mine - I was best man at his wedding! He has his football philosophy. He has his ideas and he holds onto them. Of course, you have to be flexible and sometimes he will have to adjust but he keeps with a vision and I respect that. I wish him all the best as a friend but I also believe in him as a manager.
"When we were friends in England - Martinez was at Wigan, I was at United and he helped me through some really difficult times. When I was there, he kept on motivating me. We did a marketing post-graduate degree together at Manchester University. He pushed me a lot to do those things. "
