King Eric puts Zlatan in his place
In light of Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic joining Manchester United on a one-year deal, United legend Eric Cantona had a special message for the Swede, warning him that he could only hope to be the ‘prince of Manchester’ rather than king.
"I have a personal message for Zlatan: You decided to go red. It is the best choice you ever made,” Cantona said.
"When you walk into the Theatre of Dreams. When you feel the ghosts of the legends that have been here before. When you score that first goal right in front of Stretford End. When you hear the crowd chanting your name.
"When your heart beats so strong that it bursts out of your chest. When you feel that you will love them as much as they will love you.
"You will know, my friend, that you finally made it home.
“One last thing. There can only be one king in Manchester. You can be prince if you want to. The king is gone! Long live the prince!"
