“It means a hell of a lot. It is a great honour and I am very proud. It is difficult at the minute to be over-pleased because of the result but in the grand scheme it is huge honour. It is not something I expected when I joined. As I said before, I am proud and I hope there is more to come.
The players who have played for this club have been world class. I am proud to play for this club. To be all-time goalscorer is a huge honour.” Manchester United all-time record goalscorer Wayne Rooney.
Eric Cantona, the ‘enfant terrible’ of French football and a true Manchester United legend
Éric Daniel Pierre Cantona (born 24 May 1966) is a French actor and former international footballer for the French national team. He played for Auxerre, Martigues, Marseille, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Nîmes and Leeds United before ending his career at Manchester United where he won four Premier League titles in five years and two League and FA Cup Doubles.
Cantona is often regarded as having played a key role in the revival of Manchester United as a footballing force in the 1990s and he enjoys iconic status at the club. He wore the number 7 shirt at Manchester United. Cantona is affectionately nicknamed by Manchester United fans as “King Eric”, and was voted as Manchester United’s greatest ever player by Inside United magazine. Set against his footballing achievements was a poor disciplinary record for much of his career, including a conviction for assault on a fan in 1995, although his disciplinary record was much improved after he returned from his eight-month suspension right up to his retirement as a player two years later.
