HIS CHILDHOOD
“When we were young it was wonderful. Wonderful, because we learned how to live together, how to help each other and to love each other.”

NATIONAL IDENTITY
“I am against borders. I’m just a human being. I can live anywhere.”

Eric explains his iconic celebrationVideo

MOVING TO ENGLAND
“In England everything changed and I felt free.”

INFLUENCING THE CLASS OF 92
“I never wanted to be an example. It’s a way to feel like being in jail.”

UNITED FANS STILL SINGING HIS NAME
“I feel a bit afraid that they will stop. Because they will stop one day.”

THE AFTERMATH OF THE 'KUNG-FU KICK'
“I am what I am today because I’ve lived all kinds of experiences, good and bad. I am happier where I am today.”

HIS FAMOUS “WHEN THE SEAGULLS FOLLOW THE TRAWLER” SPEECH
“I could have said ‘I love this barn’ or ‘a wire chicken is not flying over my head’. But I did not know on the day because it was coming from my subconscious.”

INFLUENCES ON HIS LIFE
“My parents gave me this sense of observation, this love to observe the world and the people around us. From these observations, you can make your own world.”

Eric, what is the meaning of life?Video

WHAT HE DID WHEN HE WASN’T PLAYING FOOTBALL
“Different things. Make love, walking on the beach on my own, thinking and dream, taking care of the kids. I loved when we won and the day after I had off and it was sunny.”

THE MEANING OF LIFE
“We have to realise we live in a circus. In a big circus. And do things seriously without taking ourselves too seriously.”

AND FINALLY…
“I am not a man. I am not French. I am Eric Cantona!”
