Eric Cantona is one of Manchester United’s greatest ever players, and therefore, a natural enemy of Liverpool supporters.
But last night, he went a small way to winning some of our favour, by annoying a group of United fans who’d paid to hear him speak…
Asked who was the best player he ever played alongside, Cantona told them ‘Gary McAllister,’ and was roundly booed, according to talkSPORT!
The Frenchman played with Zinedine Zidane, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane and David Ginola, so the fact he picked Liverpool’s Scottish legend is just brilliant!
The pair played for Leeds United together in the early 1990s before Cantona made the switch to Old Trafford and established himself as a world-class performer.
We got the privilege of McAllister for two years, between 2000 and 2002, and the midfielder racked up five trophies in that space of time under Gerard Houllier, including the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup.
He was a phenomenal footballer and the fact Cantona, a player of undeniable talent, rates him so highly – proves this!
