By now regular visitors to We All Follow United will know that I have uploaded a few drawings that I have done onto the site as part of our #MUFC related online art-gallery which is known as ‘Musée United.’

One of Manchester United’s most iconic players who really doesn’t require or need an introduction is of course Eric Cantona. Growing up as a United fan in the 1990’s, Eric was one of my favourite players and undoubtedly he was one of the club’s most important players in our long history as he brought that ‘special’ factor to our team that Sir Alex Ferguson of course had been looking for.

I won’t bore you with a long article on Eric, as we all know alot about him already. Very few foreign players have graced the English game leaving left their mark on it like he did and still be spoken about in today’s football in the same vein that active players are today.

Of course we all know about the time Eric got sent off against Crystal Palace down at Selhurst Park and that whilst walking down the touchline after being given his marching orders that he lashed out at an abusive Crystal Palace fan.

Eric went onto serve an 8-month ban given to him by the FA and of course returned the following season to almost single-handily at times win us a Premier League and FA Cup double. The following season sadly turned out to be his last and a week after the season ended he retired at the age of 31.

That season in our successful title run-in he scored in a 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park. The goal turned out to be his only one on Merseyside. The finish itself was not memorable as Eric just tapped a long David Beckham ball into the net after the keeper Paul Gerrard clattered into two of his defenders..

 ..Eric’s celebration however was and it’s what (with limited drawing ability) I have tried to capture here as our legendary Frenchman to the joy of our fans recreated that kung-fu kick on Everton’s corner-flag. You couldn’t make it up could you?
