Finally all Manchester United fans will have a chance to take a deep look to our king Eric Cantona. Pan Macmillan Publishers are running a very special competition in August to win a signed Eric Cantona Manchester United shirt and a copy of the new biography, The Rebel Who Would Be King, signed by the author, Philippe Auclair.
Philippe Auclair has been a journalist with France Football a decade, and is a creative freelance correspondent on both sides of the Channel. He is also Radio Monte Carlo’s main match commentator. He lives in London.
“Many have tried to persuade Eric Cantona to write his autobiography. He never will. Philippe Auclair has interviewed every key player in Cantona’s life to produce a biography that reveals, for the first time, the heart and inner thoughts of this most extraordinary character. Cantona played for six different French clubs, making his international debut at twenty-one, before coming to England in 1992 and making an immediate impact with Leeds United. He transformed the team but became even more talismanic when he moved to Manchester United, where to this day Manchester United fans refer to him as ‘King Eric’.Eric Cantona graced the Premiership like few others and he remains a deeply compelling figure to anyone who cares remotely about football. Cantona quotes: ‘I’m so proud the fans still sing my name, but I fear tomorrow they will stop. I fear it because I love it. And everything you love, you fear you will lose.’ ‘I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970 and the poetry of the young Rimbaud.”
