Eric the King
Another superb compilation video of Cantona. There really hasn’t been anyone else like him in recent years, and don’t know if there will ever been another footballer/ soccer player like him. He’s supremely confident and even arrogant, but he does things on the pitch that are meant to lift you out of their seats. He wants to win of course but he wants to inspire.
Éric Daniel Pierre Cantona (born 24 May 1966) is a French former footballer of the late 1980s and 1990s. He ended his professional footballing career at Manchester United where he won four English Premiership titles in five years (being suspended the season without title), including two League and FA Cup “doubles”.
Cantona is often regarded as having played a major talismanic role in the revival of Manchester United as a footballing powerhouse and he enjoys iconic status at the club. In 2001 he was voted their player of the century, and to this day United fans refer to him as “King Eric”. He is the current manager of France beach soccer team.
