Eric Cantona

If Sir Alex Ferguson was the architect of Manchester United's twenty-year dominance of English football, the cornerstone was Eric Cantona. Before the mercurial Frenchman arrived at Old Trafford, the league championship had eluded United for over a quarter of a century. But it was to sit in the Old Trafford trophy cabinet four of five seasons after Cantona's arrival. In fact, such was Cantona's impact on the Red Devils, that Fergie labelled him his greatest ever signing. A simple yet elegant and wholly fitting tribute to an outstanding player.
