Cantona: France was enroute to Cannibalism

Sun, Jul 18, 2010


Eric Cantona says France’s World Cup meltdown was a blessing in disguise for the nation’s footballers.

Cantona, who won 45 caps for France, has claimed the team’s ­in-fighting might have turned fatal had they not flown home after the group stages.

He told the Sunday Mirror: “It is a good thing that the France team returned when it did.”

“Had they stayed out there another week, they would have ended up ­eating one another.”

“Thankfully we have avoided an outbreak of cannibalism.”

Cantona also welcomed the arrival of Laurent Blanc, himself a former United player, as Raymond Domenech’s replacement.

He added: “Laurent is a great coach. He will lift the France team out of its ­current troubles.”
