Eric Cantona

King Eric

French born ex-Manchester United footy player famous for wearing his collar upwards and booting a racist football hooligan in the goolies.

Despite having long since played for the Reds in the Theatre of Dreams (Old Trafford) Cantona is still very much revered by the inhabitants of Manchester - well... 50% of them anyhow (the other half being Blues).

'King Eric' is viewed by some as a deity and the author remembers getting in to a taxi in Stockport to find the cab festooned with images of the Frog Prince... and the Pope. Funny ol' world.

Eric is also a proficient actor and budding poet, his musings causing much head scratching at a press conference when he demonstrated his poetic proficiency. Vive le difference!
