Eric Cantona has announced himself as the new manager of Man United. No, really…
I guess it was somewhat inevitable that every name under the sun was going to be linked with the Manchester United job at some point. When you’re the biggest club in the world that sells newspapers, it was always an inevitability.
From Ralf Rangnick to Ernesto Valverde, with a little Rudi Garcia in between.
Now, none other than The King, Eric Cantona, has made a bold claim about the tenure…
The United legend has taken to Instagram to announce himself as the new Manchester United manager. Yep, you did read that correctly…
Without further ado, it’s best if we just play the video.
Check out Eric Cantona’s Instagram post here:
Now, this could be a joke, or this could be 100% serious. Knowing Cantona, I have no idea whether to believe it or not. I did find it interesting that he claimed he’ll be announcing his backroom staff later, though!
Part of me wishes that this news is accurate, purely because Cantona is a legend around these parts and the respect he’d command in that dressing room would be second to none.
However, United have gone down the club legend route before. We all know it didn’t turn out too well and is that a road the Red Devils want to go down again? Probably not.
In all seriousness, the club need to go out there and hire someone with bags of experience. We’re crying out for a wise old head to steady the ship, before possibly giving up the job to Mauricio Pochettino next summer.
Would Eric Cantona be a good hire on a short-term basis? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
