Video - Cantona's message of support for Mourinho is comedy gold
Eric Cantona is back in his self-appointed role as The Commissioner of Football - and he has served up a comical message for under-fire Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
Cantona proved to be a huge hit with his brilliant Eurosport videos that ran throughout the Euro 2016 summer and now the open-shirted Old Trafford legend has sprinkled more of his unique football knowledge in a new video.
“Let’s talk about the big elephant in the room,” he bellowed as he began to address Mourinho’s troubles in his opening few months as United boss.
“I understand your frustration. The special one (Mourinho), the Swedish one (Zlatan Ibrahimovic), the most expensive one (Paul Pogba), the one who stole my number (No.7 shirt worn by Memphis Depay), the one with the hair transplant (Wayne Rooney).
“All these ones, they don’t make a whole yet, but give them a little credit. Football is not a f***ing science. Plus Mourinho’s nemesis Pep (Guardiola) and Arsene (Wenger) are co-leading the Premier League so I strongly doubt that Jose is going to give up.
“Hang in there Jose…it could be worse. You could be coaching Sunderland!”
Cantona went on to compare Mourinho’s troubles at United to cow dung in a video that can only make you smile.
