Cantona Quotes:

Whatever happens, there are always things you could have done better. You score two goals and you usually feel you could have done better.  You score two goals and you usually feel you could have scored a third. That’s perfectionism. That’s what makes you progress in life.”

“A good goal is one that is important and beautiful.”

“Leaving a club is like leaving a woman. When you have nothing left to say, you go.”

“An artist in my eyes, is someone who can lighten up a dark room.I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970 and the poetry of the young Rimbaud, who stretches cords from steeple to steeple and garlands from window to window. There is in each of these human manifestations an expression of beauty which touches us and gives us a feeling of eternity.”
