"'An artist, in my eyes, is someone who can lighten up a dark room. I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970, and the poetry of the young Rimbaud' Eric Cantona 'I'd give all the champagne I've ever drunk to be playing alongside Cantona in a big European match at Old Trafford' George Best" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

But Eric Cantona was one of most controversial characters to play in Premier League and at his hey day fantastic to watch when not embroiled
in off field antics.
I wanted to get to know more about him and his pysche.
What is revealing is how he was (mis)treated by French and Marseilles fans so you can see how he had the proverbial chip on his shoulder
even before joining Leeds/Man U.
A gifted but slightly flawed individual, this is a highly interesting read on his upbringing in France and how his career blossomed and faltered
and that is before even getting into his Premier League exploits.
The book does get into maybe too many details about his career in France
but it also gives good insight into how his mind works so will set you up for how he came about entering the Premier League and his thought process and infamously violent side. Overall a fascinating read.
To the book.... I own quite a few autobiographies. Most are truly atrocious, offering very little insight to the person themselves. This book is difference in many ways.
It's not written with the involvement or authorization of Cantona at all. That I think helps more than hinders as it means we spend a lot of time exploring the life story of Eric - it certainly doesn't focus on the "glory years" of Eric's football in England, which we don't get to until 2/3rd of the way into the book.
And that's perhaps the downside for some (but not me). I was interested to learn about his early life, his family, his time in French football - all things I knew nothing about. Others looking for 400 pages of Eric's career at Manchester United will feel short changed.
The one thing against a 5 star is the author's tendency to dwell just too much on the psuedo-intellectual side of things.....but then he too is French!
keep the internet close by while reading to google the goals described.
