Eric Cantona joins Premier League Hall of Fame

Eric Cantona has become the third player to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

The 54-year-old Frenchman joins Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, who were announced as the initial inductees last month.

Cantona won four titles in five seasons as a catalyst at Manchester United – during which he scored 70 goals in 156 Premier League appearances.

The King commented on his induction, saying (via France 24): “I am very happy and very proud, but at the same time I am not surprised.

“I would’ve been surprised not to be elected! I have been lucky to play in this team, with wonderful players, a wonderful manager and wonderful fans.

“We won and it was the football I dreamed about because Manchester United, it’s a club where they want to win things but in a good way.”

The Hall of Fame was introduced last month to recognise and celebrate the best players who have graced the Premier League since its inception in 1992.

There’s no denying that Cantona deserved to be inducted, but who do you think will be the next Manchester United player to be added to the list?
