With time running out on Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United career, the search for his replacement brings about an element of panic for our fans. After spending over two decades with the club winning trophy after trophy, the idea of bringing someone else in is terrifying.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer currently learning his trade with our Reserves, there would be some who fancied him for the job. Another former player whose name always gets a mention has today claimed that for him to become a football coach, he must manage great players. He’d have to look hard to find a team with greater players than United!
“I have the pretentiousness to think that I must work with great players,” said Cantona. “Just look at Maradona, he is the perfect example of what I’m saying. As a club coach he has won 2 games out of 25. But being Argentina’s coach is the ideal place for him and his results are proving it. I don’t know if I’m right, but I have convictions and if coaching is to be my job, I will do it as an artist.”
