An interesting read.....written too early?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cantona: My Story (Hardcover)
This is a book written in a fairly unusual, quant and flowery sort of way. It traces Cantona's life from childhood to midway through his career at Manchester United. He is man with strong views and clear family values. He clearly does not suffer fools lightly. He has clearly had disagreements with former clubs and the French FA. Some of the insights into managers such as Howard Wilkinson interesting. His description of United is fairly diplomatic in comparison and that is no doubt because he was still at the Club when this was published. This books was published ebfore the incident at Crystal palace and before he retired. It is a book which would have benefited by waiting a few years. It was written too soon. Probably pretty good for its time but if buying in 2011, you would want something a bit more up to date than this which convered his whole career at Old Trafford and what he has bene doing since.
