Will the French cult-hero step into the hotseat?
Our traders have made Eric Cantona 100/1 to manage Manchester United one day, after the Frenchman’s recent link to an ambassadorial role at the club.
Cantona is set to join Denis Irwin and Bryan Robson as an ambassador for the club, which could see him appearing on MUTV and representing the club by appearing at official events and occasions.
As well as the infamous kung-fu kick incident that saw him banned from football for eight months, ‘King Eric’ is fondly remembered among United fans for his goalscoring exploits and his philosophical musings – winning four Premier League titles and two FA Cups during his five-year stint at the club.
“Following the news that Eric Cantona may return to Old Trafford as an ambassador, we have taken some bets on King Eric becoming manager of the Reds one day,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“Although you can never say never in football, our odds still suggest that remains unlikely,” added Hill.
