15 years ago: Eric Cantona and the Kung Fu Kick

Fifteen years ago this month, Manchester United’s Eric Cantona was sent off at Selhurst Park and proceeded to kung fu kick a Wimbledon fan who abused him.

Arguably this is one of the biggest sporting news stories of the 1990s.

This story was huge! I can’t believe that it happened and equally I can’t comprehend that it took place fifteen years ago! It seems like yesterday.

Oh to have been a Press Officer for Manchester United. I’d love to get their take on the story.
