An Audience With Eric Cantona

Tickets at the Lowry Lyric Theatre, Manchester

Sunday 28th October 2018

Afternoon & Evening Performances Available

ERIC CANTONA live onstage talking about his life and times including his love of Manchester United, his life today and his illustrious career to date.

Eric Cantona is a French actor and former international footballer for the French national team. He played for Auxerre, Martigues, Marseille, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Nîmes and Leeds United before ending his career at Manchester United where he won four Premier League titles in five years and two League and FA Cup Doubles. He won the league championship in seven of his last eight full seasons as a professional.

A large, physically strong, hard-working, and tenacious forward, who combined technical skill and creativity with power and goal scoring ability, Cantona is often regarded as having played a key role in the revival of Manchester United as a footballing force in the 1990s and having an iconic status at the club. He wore the number 7 shirt at Manchester United with his trademark upturned collar. Cantona is affectionately nicknamed by Manchester United fans as “King Eric”, and was voted as Manchester United’s greatest ever player by Inside United magazine. Set against his achievements in football was a poor disciplinary record for much of his career, including a 1995 conviction for an assault on a fan for which he received an eight-month suspension.

Following his retirement from football in 1997, he took up a career in cinema and had a role in the 1998 film Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett, the 2008 film French Film, and the 2009 film Looking for Eric. In 2010, he debuted as a stage actor in Face au Paradis, a French play directed by his wife, Rachida Brakni.  Cantona also took an interest in the sport of beach soccer, and as player-manager of the French national team, he won the 2005 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.

An inaugural inductee into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002, the museum states: “The enigmatic Frenchman was one of the Premier League’s most controversial players ever”.
