Eric Cantona

It was during his Manchester United days that he had the most success, winning four Premier League titles as well as two FA Cups.
Unfortunately, Cantona is equally well known for being banned from football for an astounding eight months after the infamous kung-fu kick incident. Having been red carded; Cantona was making his way off the field when he assaulted a fan in the crowd who had launched some verbal abuse his way with a stunning flying kick in a match at Crystal Palace.
However, Cantona’s on-field exploits still thankfully overshadow that incident, and he is widely regarded as one of Manchester United’s greatest ever players. He was named in the PFA Team of the Century for the years 1907-2007.
Cantona has two children with ex wife Isabell Ferrer, as well as two with current wife Rachida Brakni, whom he married in 2007.
