Eric Cantona, the former striker of the Blues, has clearly positioned himself against the creation of a new European competition.
While her heart training, Manchester United, is one of the 12 founding clubs of the Super League, the former Red Devils center forward has publicly stated that he does not support the project. In a video shared on his Instagram account, Eric Cantona asked for more respect for the fans from the bosses of the big clubs.
” I would like to say something about the Super League. For a year now, we have seen matches on television with the best clubs and the best players in the world. And it’s really boring, said Eric Cantona. Because the fans are not there. The supporters sing, jump, support their team. Fans are the most important thing in football and they should be respected. “
Eric Cantona is not the only Manchester United legend to clearly oppose the creation of this Super League. Gary Neville or even the iconic Mancunian coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, did it a few hours before him. ” Have these big clubs asked their fans what they think of this idea? No unfortunately, and it’s a shame “, Concluded the French in his message on social networks.
