jesjua ANGOY cruijff


Jesjua Angoy-Cruyff is the grandson of Johan Cruyff, former coach and player for both FC Barcelona and Ajax. He is the son of Chantal Cruyff, Johan’s daughter, and Jesús Angoy, a former goalkeeper for FC Barcelona. His uncle is Jordi Cruyff, former Barcelona, Manchester United, and Netherlands national football team player. Angoy-Cruyff was born in Barcelona while his father played for the club. 


Between 2008 and 2011, Angoy-Cruyff played for the FC Barcelona’s Youth Academy. After failing to be promoted to the A-team, the player and the club mutually agreed to part ways after two years. After leaving Barcelona, he signed for Wigan Athletic, playing for their reserve team from 2011 to 2013. Prior to his signing at Wigan, Angoy-Cruyff was touted as one of the former Barca youth players who were expected to excel in the Premier League in the future. After joining Wigan, then-coach Roberto Martinez said of the player, “He is only a boy…it is going to be two or three years before he has adapted to the physical side of the game…but he has great ability. Tactically, the boy is a joy to watch” while adding in jest, “I don’t know where he gets it from.”. After Wigan were relegated from the Premier League following the 2012–13 Premier League season, Angoy-Cruyff left the club and signed a one-year contract with the reserve team of FC Lausanne-Sport of the Swiss Super League. 


On 16 April 2014, it was announced that Angoy-Cruyff signed for the Dayton Dutch Lions FC of the USL Pro, the second division of the United States soccer pyramid, on a 3-year contract. He made his debut for the club on 19 April 2014 against the Harrisburg City Islanders, coming on as a 70th-minute substitute for Eli Garner. 


He returned to Spain in summer 2015 to join Reus, who sent him on loan to satellite club Morell. Following his departure from Reus, he played the 2017–18 season in Sitges with Suburense in Segona Catalana.


At Dayton Dutch Lions FC he played 17 games as a left winger.
