Some are born to instinctively lead. A knife painting of King Eric in retro half green & yellow shirt.
Eric Daniel Pierre Cantona started his football life playing in goal for his local team. After being turned down by Liverpool, Trevor Francis’s Sheffield Wednesday couldn’t afford to sign him. I was lucky to be in CEO Bill Fotherby’s office at Elland Road and met Eric Cantona on the day he signed for Leeds United for a fee of £900,000 (eqiv to £1.8million today) from Nimes. His next transfer was to Manchester United for £1.2 million….”He illuminated Old Trafford. The place was a frenzy every time he touched the ball” … Manager Alex Ferguson.
