cantona to cristiano

July 30, 2008

Cantona, 42, has already gone on record as saying that he cannot understand why the Portuguese megastar would want to leave Old Trafford, and this time he wasn’t holding back any punches.

Cantona said: “He is still young, and so maybe he wants to take on fresh challenges. I can understand if this is the reason why he wants to leave for Real.

“But if he were to leave because of something else, he would be doing something absolutely bloody stupid.”

The Frenchman, who spent five glorious years at the club inspiring United to four Premier League titles and two FA Cups before retiring from football in 1997, also took the opportunity to confirm reports that he would love to make an emotional return to Old Trafford as a manager.

“It would be a huge honour for me to become Manchester United’s coach – it would be marvellous,” he told The Mirror.
