Johan Cruyff is one of the best dribbler ever. He had the ability to find the weak point of the defender and make turn in a short area. He could suddenly accelerate and he could also change direction in a short time.

He had his own move named after him, “The Cruyff turn”. In this move he would look like passing the ball to his teammate but instead of kicking he would drag the ball behind his planted foot with the inside of his other foot, turn 90 degrees and accelerate away from the defender.
