Manchester United F.C.

Seven craziest moments of Man Utd legend Eric Cantona including fan attack, bizarre trawler press conference and ...

In 1989, Cantona was suspended indefinitely by Marseille having deliberately hoofed the ball into the crowd and then thrown his shirt at the referee during a friendly against Torpedo Moscow.

Cantona, 52, netted 20 goals for the French national team in 45 caps On 25 January 1995, Manchester United had travelled south to London to play Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Second in the table, they had lost just one their last 16 games but three minutes in to the second half Cantona was given a red card for kicking out at the Eagles’ defender Richard Shaw.

As he left the field of play, he responded to taunts from a Palace supporter, 20-year-old Matthew Simmons, and snapped, launching himself at him with a flying kung-fu kick before trying to land a few punches for good measure.

In 1996, Cantona laid waste to his former French international colleague Didier Deschamps before United played Juventus, calling him a “water carrier”.
