Eric Cantona names the two football icons he admires most
Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has named Ryan Giggs and Paolo Maldini as the players he admires most.
Cantona, 56, played for eight different clubs during his illustrious career but it was his five years at Old Trafford that made him a household name before quitting football unexpectedly aged 30.
Having grown tired of the striker's antics, The Frenchman joined United in a £1.2m deal from Leeds.
The Old Trafford hero has admitted he gets ‘bored easily’ but that’s the reason he admires Giggs and Maldini, who spent their entire careers at their boyhood clubs.
The Legend told The Athletic: "I am very happy. I still live great moments, in another world, which is much better I think than becoming a manager or staying in the world of football. I don’t know if it is better.".
"I admire Ryan Giggs or Paolo Maldini, who played in the same club for 20 years as a professional."
"I admire them because me I cannot do it, I get bored very quickly, maybe because I have other passions."
