The Barcelona legend has confirmed that he will be boycotting the club for the rest of the president's reign and says he is supporting Ajax when the two clubs meet.
The Netherlands icon spent a total of 13 years at the club, serving as both player and coach, but is known not to see eye to eye with the 49-year-old.
Cruyff, who also had a glittering career at Ajax, has confirmed that he will not be present when his two former teams clash next week in the Champions League.
"I will not go to Camp Nou as long as Rosell is president at Barcelona, so I will not attend Barcelona-Ajax," he told RTL Late Night.
"I also hope that Ajax win this match."
During his time in charge of the Catalan club, Cruyff won one European Cup, one Cup Winners' Cup and four Liga titles.
