Man Utd legend Eric Cantona and son Emir both net in legends game with Fabian Barthez and Djibril Cisse


MANCHESTER UNITED legend Eric Cantona and his son Emir both scored in a French charity match that featured legends such as Fabian Barthez and Djibril Cisse.

The Frenchman proved that class was permanent as he got on the score sheet with a good headed finish.

His son, who is reported as being in his early teens, then followed up with a goal after his 56-year-old father netted.

Cantona is among the Premier League’s most revered legends and had several defining career moments while at Manchester United.

Among his most infamous moments include his impish chip against Sunderland, his cryptic quote about seagulls and trawlers, and his kung-fu kick into a Crystal Palace fan in 1995.

There was nothing quite so dramatic on show at the charity game but the Cantona name was still heavily involved.

Highlights from Sky Sports show Cantona preparing for the game in the tunnel, as he snaps pictures with his fellow legends.

He then strides out onto the pitch with his young son Emir.

And he appears to be in the thick of the action before long with highlights showing him scoring.

Cantona can be seen making a run across the front post before flicking in a header.


It’s then the turn of Emir to impress as he too grabbed a goal.

The young man can be seen zooming into the box as his team slowly build towards the opposition goal.

He latches onto a ball into the area and slots home with his right foot.

While enjoying life back on the pitch, Cantona is also making his voice heard off it.

In this week alone he has criticised David Beckham’s involvement with the Qatar World Cup and revealed that he wanted to become “president of football” at Man United.
