Barcelona legend Cruyff defends Ibrahimovic, Henry lack of goals

Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff has rubbished criticism of strikers Thierry Henry and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Both players have drawn heat over their lack of goals so far this season.

But Cruyff says: "There's always one or the other to point the finger at. If you are not scoring goals and a striker, you have to live with it. Judging forwards only by their lack of goals is as easy as it is incorrect."

The Dutchman highlighted their work off the ball and how it has allowed Pedro to be so successful this season.

"This sort of thing goes unnoticed. But Pedro is able to take advantage because they're so good at what they do."
