Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of Eric Cantona’s latest film, Looking For Eric.

“I saw it with the staff here at United and thought it was marvellous. Absolutely brilliant,” said Ferguson. “Like all Ken Loach films, it had a social message which was very strong and I thought Eric was terrific in it. I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago actually and he said he really enjoyed doing the film and working with Ken. I think it should win awards.”
