"We`ll drink a drink a drink,

To Eric the King the King the King!

He`s the leader of our football team,

He`s the greatest center-forward

That the world has ever seen!"

A mercurial presence in his prime with the temper of a lion. A true King on the pitch, and a club legend off it. Eric Daniel Pierre Cantona, with his collars up, has literally won the hearts of every Manchester United fan from his playing days.
