arrived at Old Trafford in December 1992 and so began Manchester
United's domination of English football as the Red Devils swept
everyone else aside to win the League and FA Cup almost at will.
A player of
true vision and creativity. His passing, innovation and influence
was unrivalled in the Premier League, and inspired a new generation
of young players including Beckham, Scholes, Giggs et al.
In 2003 the
retired Frenchman was awarded the accolade of the best player to
have ever graced the Old Trafford turf.
It might surprise
you to learn that almost 10 years have passed since Eric Cantona
famously attacked the Crystal Palace fan that verbally abused him
during Manchester United's visit to Selhurst Park in the 94-95 season.
To reflect on the occassion, the Observer
and Guardian published
four articles on the subject.
