Remember Cantona’s kung fu kick?
Is Eric Cantona on the way back to Manchester United? So at least the Daily Mirror claims. Well, this is not a comeback to the meadow, but a role within the club.
According to the publication, the Red Devils are considering appointing the 53-year-old Frenchman to the honorary ambassador, alongside names like Brian Robson and Dennis Irwin who are already serving in a similar role. United also know that Cantonese was and remains one of Old Trafford’s most beloved and beloved players and often the legendary manager Alex Ferguson claimed that the 1992 acquisition of the French striker was “his greatest of all time”.
Cantona has won four championships, two trophies and three community defenses with United, although in recent times the club has been heavily criticized. Last year, after another series of failures under the guidance of Ola Gunnar Solashiar, in a press interview, he said: “Manchester United has a warm corner in my heart, but I have to say it – when I watch it play, I feel like it’s an old man trying You can make an effort, but it will always end in disappointment. ”
Cantona is also remembered for the kingdom due to its famous kung fu kick at Crystal Palace fans. This happened on January 25, 1995, during his team’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace in London. In the 48th minute, with the score 0: 0, the French footballer kicked Palace defender Richard Show and received a red card from the referee.
The real drama came a few seconds later: As United made his way down the court, one of the fans sitting in the front row swore at him and Canton blasted wildly at him, sending a two-legged kung-fu kick towards him. He then added some blows to the stunned fan when manager Alex Ferguson, goalkeeper Peter Schmichel and a number of bouncers rushed over and reassured him. Cantona by his club from all team games until the end of the season, and was fined $ 30,000, which was his two-week salary./>
