THE KING IN PERSON


    





IN HIS OWN WORDS

"Im very proud to play for Manchester United.
I feel I'm living something I won't find anywhere else."

"If I had wanted to draw attention to myself
I would have become a single tennis player. Or found a
nice little girl to play mixed double with".

"I try to provide entertainment on field
to help to distract people from their worries, even fo
90 minutes. If only society could do that for eternity."

"I am in the heart of the supporters, the player,
and manager Alex Ferguson."

"Even since I was a boy I dreamed of things
like this, to be able to play football and try to win major tournaments."

"I hope I have come to my spiritual home."

"I love the fact that the fans seem to love me."

"As long as I am happy I will stay here."


IN OTHERS WORDS

"The best there ever was and the best there ever will be.
Thank you Eric, for making our dreams come true."
Darel Payne, Ashford

"The days of perfection, culture and art must be wiped, clean,
killed, cut dead; the mounth and years of grace and agility must be forgotten-
Buried in Red....
Susan William, Denbighshire

"Even as Liverpool fan, I have to say thr seagulls will miss
the picking from the trawler."
Malandra Burrows

"It's breaking my heart, He's one of the world's greatest
players and he'll be a tremendous loss."
Ulrika Jonsson,Sun

"I can't believe this will be once and for all.
Eric is a bit tired after six massive season in which he has put in huge
mental and phtsical efforts. He need a holiday...But he has what it takes to
carry on playing. If he doese carry on playing, it will be back in England."
Bernard Ferrer, Eric Cantona's brother-in-law


MY WORDS

" ERIC CANTONA IS STILL THE KING AND I,
FOR ONE, CANNOT WAIT TO SEE HIM PERFORMING IN A RED SHIRT ONCE AGAIN,
THE SHIRT OF MANCHESTER UNITED
