Kung Fu Cantona

It was 18 years ago yesterday when Eric booted a fan in the face with a swift, kung fu esque kick.

But at least Eric saw the errors of his ways, in an interview in 2011 he said:

'... it’s like a dream for some, you know sometimes to kick these kind of people... so I did it for [the fans]. So they are happy. It’s a kind of freedom for them.'
