Two Manchester United legends were reunited this week as Eric Cantona met up with former teammate Ryan Giggs.
Cantona’s swagger and class made him a Man United icon over the course of his five seasons at the club. The Frenchman eventually retired in 1997 having scored 82 goals for the Reds. Giggs, meanwhile, is top of United’s all-time appearance list. Both Giggs and Cantona were instrumental in United’s double of 1996 as Sir Alex Ferguson‘s side clinched the Premier League title and FA Cup.
Cantona was back in Manchester for a special trip which raised money for a children’s hospital in Paris and he met up with his old teammate following the 1-1 draw against Leicester City:

United could certainly do with players of Giggs and Cantona’s ability right now.
Ferguson’s side were practically unstoppable with them both in the side and their legacy at Old Trafford will never be forgotten.
But United have to move on eventually and Louis van Gaal’s side may yet end the season with an FA Cup win and a top four finish in the Premier League. Assuming they beat Norwich City this weekend, of course.
