One of the most flamboyant players ever to play the game, Eric Cantonas antics off the field often seem to outshine his brilliance on the field. Erics career started with the small French side Auxerre, and from there he moved on to first division team Marseille for a fee of 2.3 million.

He was voted Manchester Uniteds player of the century, and to this day United fans refer to him as King Eric.

Following his retirement from football, Eric turned his attention to the big screen and took up a career in cinema winning a role in the 1998 film Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett.

In 2010, he made his debut as a stage actor in Face au paradis, a French play directed by his wife - Rachida Brakni.
