Eric Cantona has been mobbed by fans on the way to the premiere of his new film Switch in England.

Security had to hold over-excited fans back on Haymarket, London so that Cantona could enter the Cineworld Haymarket cinema to attend the screening of new thriller Switch, directed by Frederic Schoendoerffer, co-starring Pan Am star Karine Vanasse.

Cantona – who left England after retiring from football 15 years ago – said what he missed most about the country was “the food”, and what he missed most was “broccoli”.

Cantona stars as Detective Forgeat, a Paris policeman on the trail of escaped murder suspect Sophie Malaterre (played by Karine Vanasse).

Interviewed on whether he did his own stunts in the action film, he joked: “You insult me?!”

“I really enjoy it. I asked for everything. They prepared a stunt double for some things but I found it exciting so I wanted to do it myself.”

Cantona also revealed that as part of his research for the role, he shadowed a real French police officer.

He said: “I discovered a lot of things which would give me great inspiration.”
