"Eric, what made you want to return to Manchester United?"
Cantonas first Press Conference
Speaking aloud. Cantona talks about United and Mata situation.
1/7/13, Old Trafford, Press Conference.
"The prospect of taking control of a club that needs the best it can get now Sir Alex has gone, obviously I had my doubts about returning, but I feel I can do at least half of what he has done, which is still an terrific achievement."
"You said that you didn't know weather to return or not. Why is that?"
"Well, it's Manchester, the smell of pollution and rotting tramps, of course I love that kind of stuff."
"What are your plans for the team, do you have an idea of who you would like out, and possibly in?"
"For me to say now wouldn't be right, the time for you to know these things will come"
"Will Juan Mata be a part of your squad this season?"
"Is there ham in a ham sandwich? Of course he will be!"
"Are there any other players that will be coming in to strengthen your squad?"
"Well you have to look at the squad now and decide for yourself. Two ageing centre backs who at the end of the season will not be here, and two young centre backs who have not the most experience ever, there are likely to be some new faces in, so fans can look forward yo that
"Do you feel any pressure being near enough the successor of Sir Alex?"
"Well yes there is pressure taking over from the legend himself, but, I am a King, remember?"
"Final question Eric, are you and United, title winners?"
