"King Eric" one of the Premier Leagues most iconic players and Manchester United legend will be coming to Birmingham for his first ever audience with his fans!
The French actor and former international footballer played for Auxerre, Martigues, Marseille, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Nîmes and Leeds United before ending his career at Manchester United where he won four Premier League titles in five years and two League and FA Cup Doubles. He won the league championship in seven of his last eight full seasons as a professional. "He illuminated Old Trafford. The place was a frenzy every time he touched the ball." - Sir Alex Ferguson
The controversial striker has been praised as the one who brought back the trophies to one of the world's most famous football clubs. Cantona is well-known for being banned from playing football for 8 months after kicking a fan during a match. His career at Old Trafford was like a marriage: filled with passion, and turbulent. And just as shocking as his arrival, was his departure. Out of the blue, Manchester United called for a press conference during the summer of 1997 announcing Cantona's retirement, aged 30 years old.
The Frenchman went on to play international beach football for a few years, before being named the New York Cosmos director of football in 2011 - only to be sacked for a confrontation with a photographer.
This special night with Eric Cantona gives you the chance to meet and get close to the mercurial Frenchman and listen to his personal story - live and unscripted.
