Eric Cantona has admitted that he regrets missing out on Manchester United’s Champions League triumph in 1999.
After leaving United at the end of the 1997 season, Cantona moved to Barcelona with his family.
In Andy Mitten’s book, Glory Glory: Man Utd in the ’90s, Cantona says: “When you see teams win things you want to be involved.”
“But I had been away from football for two years. I was proud and happy. I knew ten of the players and Ferguson. I was very happy for him. I would have loved to have been on the pitch in Barcelona, of course.”
