Man Utd rumours: Eric Cantona in, Carlos Queiroz out?


7th, July 2008

King Eric to reclaim Old Trafford throne?
With Carlos Queiroz lined up to replace Big Phil Scolari as coach of the Portuguese national team, Fergie will need a No.2.
According to the ever-reliable Sunday Express, a friend of Cantona’s says that a coaching job at United could tempt the Frenchman out of self-exile: “Eric does fancy the idea of helping out with the coaching at a club like Manchester United,” the source revealed.

Hmm, this stinks of merde. I suspect that an Express hack has simply applied tenuous logic to the Queroz story.
Who would United fans love to see back at Old Trafford, more than any other ex-player? Cantona, of course.
Has Cantona expressed any desire to become a manager? Not really, no. He’s messed about with acting and beach soccer, but has shown zero interest in a return to serious football.
I’m not saying that I don’t want to see Cantona back involved in English football – I just can’t see it happening. Can you? Vote below…
