I saw Johan Cruyff play for Barcelona in the George Armstrong testimonial match at Highbury in March 1974, when he was in his prime, and then again, when he was 59, at the opening of the Emirates for the Dennis Bergkamp testimonial against Ajax in July 2006; at this game I was stood very close to him as he spoke to Dennis before the game, and I was surprised at how diminutive he was; maybe he'd lost a little height as he aged, but I'm 6 foot (approx 1.83m), and my estimate would be he was around 5ft 8.5"(approx 1.74m). Whatever his height.... what a player.

In morning, I'm 5 ft 10 in (177.7 cm) on barefoot and 5 ft 11 3/8 in (181.4 cm) on shoes. I guess Johan Cruyff is tall as me, just 5 ft 10 in (177.8 cm). Taller than 1 mm or more mm that doesn't matter

@Rob can you put the claim of Beckenbauer? He was listed 1.81

Well, Here, the players used to give responses back in the 70's and 80's. Some of the bigger foreign names of that era did...

Maybe a shade under 5'10". Here he is with Beckenbauer: Click Here

Beckenbauer claimed to be a 6 footer, although that's debatable.
