🇳🇱 Johan Cruyff: “One day, Romario asked me if he could miss training to go to Brazil for carnival. I said: ‘If you score 2 goals tomorrow you can go.’ He scored twice in 20 minutes against Real Madrid and asked to be replaced. ‘Coach, my plane leaves in 1 hour.’”.

Quality. 😂🇧🇷

The real story: Rio's carnival was in early January, 1994. Cryuff (jokingly) agreed if he scored twice against Real that he could have a bit of extra time off. Romario played the full 90 minutes, scored his 3rd goal in the 81st minute and left for the airport after the game.

Romário in Flamengo 1995 Romário and Bebeto - USA - Word Champion 1994 Dear European friends, there is no football in Europe alone. Brazil 5 world titles. Most winning country in history. Flamengo is a mythical club. pic.twitter.com/aXoBLJZzTX
Hey gidi be!
Anlık piçler bilmez Romario'yu.
Ne dönerdi be aniden 270 derece top ayağına yapışık , haberin olmazdı ne yapıyor. Yanından geçip gider bırakırdı topu ağlara.
Neydi o günler...

Lies... he only scored against Real Madrid once, and none of his goals (hat trick) were within 20 minutes of the other. pic.twitter.com/bMTp2IuX4P
Romario solo marcó una vez al Madrid con la camiseta del Barça. Marcó 3 goles y dos fueron en la 2.ª parte. Además era enero por lo que no había carnaval.
Fake news. Scored his 2nd goal in the 56th minute and he had no plane booked with departure during match time

Romário only played for Barca for a season and a half. The Real Madrid game in question was on January 8th. Carnaval in Rio that year started on February 11th - five weeks later. Also, he scored three goals in that Real Madrid game - 24th, 56th and 81st minutes. He wasn't subbed.
Johan Cruyff: “Bir gün Romario, karnaval için Brezilya'ya gitmek istediğini antreanmanı kaçırırsam sorun olur mu?” dedi.
'Yarın 2 gol atarsan gidebilirsin.' dedim. Real Madrid'e 20 dk’da 2 gol attı kenara geldi ‘Koç, beni oyundan al uçağım 1 saat içinde kalkıyor.'dedi.
I love the way people outside the western world prioritise enjoyment over their jobs. Living to work instead of working to live is the ugliest thing about western culture

First world Cup I watched was 94. Romario was absolutely unbelievable, one of the best finishers ever
Al final jugó todo el partido y luego viajó al carnaval.
Que afortunados fuimos los que pudimos ver a tremendo CRACK.

One of the true great strikers that often gets overlooked. #clinical

If I ever ask my coach if I can miss training for a carnival, I’m getting kicked off the team ✌️
Only Brazilians can do this🤣
Friendly reminder that it was Pep Guardiola who assisted 2 of his goals that night.
Brazilian players enjoy life like no others

Reminds me of the time Celtic played Red Star Belgrade in the 1968 European Cup. Jimmy Johnstone hated flying so Jock Stein said he could miss the away leg if we won by 4 goals. We won 5-1, with Jinky scoring twice and earning himself a night in front of the telly.
