After Eric Cantona had been sent off at Crystal Palace and walked towards the tunnel, an opposing fan started shouting racist abuse at the Frenchman, which lead to that famous kung-fu kick. Cantona was quite literally attempting to kick racism out of football and it cost him 9 months of his career.
Cantona has spoken out about that incident today in The Mirror.
“I didn’t punch him strong enough,” he said. “I should have punched him harder.”
