Johnny Rep Profile
Johnny Rep - Career
Superb attacking talent who could play either as a right winger or as a striker. Rep's professional career started with Ajax in 1971 and by the time of the 1974 World Cup he'd already won two Eredivisie titles and two European Cup trophies. His form going into that World Cup saw him become a key part of the side that thrilled the world and came so close to lifting the trophy. With Johan Cruyff not playing in Argentina in 1978 he was even more important, and had another fine tournament as Holland again finished runners-up.
At club level Rep left Ajax in 1975 and spent eight seasons in Europe, continuing to score and create goals at Valencia, Bastia and Saint-Étienne, with whom he'd win the title in 1981 alongside Michel Platini.
