Yup. The title speaks for itself. Eric Cantona did, in fact, compare his former gaffer Sir Alex Fergsuon to the influential historical figure Mahatma Gandhi. Speaking to the New York Times recently Cantona said:
“All I will say is that I think Ferguson will stay as the manager, after that, there will be more problems. Today, he is like Gandhi on the game side. With Manchester, I prefer to say, to think, to realise that Ferguson is a kind of genius.
“He had so many different generations of players now. He’s 70 (later this year) and works with players 18 years old, but adapts himself to all generations
Sorry emm Eric? United won’t be dealt half as many problems as you’ll endure as Sporting Director of a team that isn’t even formed yet.
