#5 Cantona's kung-fu kick
Eric Cantona's kung-fu kick on a fan was one moment of madness which shocked football. Crystal Palace fan Matthew Simmons was abusing Cantona's mother and as soon as Cantona heard it, he launched his fierce kick right into the ribs of the fan.
"My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan." Cantona said on the kung-fu kick. Cantona was banned for 9 months from football which was one of the longest bans in the league's history.
"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea," Cantona said in a press conference post the incident.
