Eric Cantona reckons he should have been the man to replace Sir Alex Ferguson
Since Fergie called it quits in 2013, United are already onto their third manager – after David Moyes and Louis van Gaal both failed miserably.

“Nobody else. Only me.”
Cantona hung up his boots in 1997 to become an actor and has no intention of returning to the beautiful game.
