The Greatest Ever Frenchman.

Charles de Gaulle? Napoléon Bonaparte? Talleyrand? For those fortunate enough to have been hanging around central Manchester in the 1990's, the answer is clear and sans appel. Every season this man finished in England, he was crowned champion, beit with Leeds or Manchester United. Had he not kung-fued his way to a ban in early 1995 he and his team would have notched up another scalp that May. Eric Cantona; I, and thousands of others, continue to salute you, fourteen years after your retirement from the game.
