Days after seeing David Beckham don their green and gold scarf, the Manchester United Supporters Trust are calling on Eric Cantona to join them.
The Manchester United Supporters Trust have written an open letter to the likes of Eric Cantona and Peter Schmeichel aimed at encouraging other Old Trafford icons to visibly support their war against the club’s owners.
Part of a letter to MUST’s 131,000 members reads: “I’m sure you were watching the incredible moment when Beckham bathed in green and gold. It’s moments like this that justify all the collective effort we’ve been putting into this campaign. We are showing our strength. We are making a real difference.
“We welcomed a legend back to Old Trafford – now we need to capitalise on this moment and bring other United heroes into our fold.
“We’ve just written a letter to Beckham, Cantona and all of the former United players which calls on them to join our campaign to reclaim United.
“This is our chance to reach out to the United players who built our club – who led from the front and defined United’s success over the past decades. But our club is in trouble – we need them to lead United again right here, right now.
“Beckham united with the fans and led by example. Beckham has shown his true colours, now it’s up to us to show ours.
“The time to reclaim United is now.”
