Early life
Although it has been suggested that he was born in Paris Cantona was actually born in Marseille to Albert Cantona a nurse and a painter and Éléonore Raurich a dressmaker. Cantona was instrumental as the team went on to win the French Cup and his form persuaded Marseille to take him back. He then scored the only goal of the game in the 86th minute and became the first player from outside the British Isles to lift the FA Cup as captain; Manchester United became the first team to win "the double" twice.

Following his retirement from football he took up a career in cinema and had a role in the 1998 film Elizabeth starring Cate Blanchett the 2008 film French Film and the 2009 film Looking for Eric. He wore the number 7 shirt at United which was previously worn by George Best and Bryan Robson and subsequently worn by David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Cantona is often regarded as having played a key role in the revival of Manchester United as a footballing force and he enjoys iconic status at the club.
