Watch: Man Utd legend Eric Cantona reacts to European Super League plans


Eric Cantona criticised former club Manchester United and their fellow ‘European Super League’ clubs for failing to take into account their supporters with their controversial new plans.

On Sunday, United were one of 12 clubs to announce they intend to form a breakaway European Super League, a proposal criticised by their legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Gary Neville called the plans a “criminal act” on Sky Sports and admitted he feels “complicit” for previously staying quiet when given the chance to condemn the Glazers.

And on Monday, Cantona released a video in which he said the pandemic has proven football to be “boring” without fans, questioning whether any supporters were ever consulted.
