Man Utd icon Cantona reveals two legends he admires

Published on: 28 September 2022

Manchester United great Eric Cantona says there's two former players he admires for their longevity.

Cantona praised United legend Ryan Giggs, 48, and AC Milan icon Paolo Maldini, 54, both of who spent an incredible 24 years playing for their respective clubs - and nobody else.

The Frenchman told The Athletic: "I am very happy. I still live great moments, in another world, which is much better I think than becoming a manager or staying in the world of football. I don't know if it is better.

"I admire Ryan Giggs or Paolo Maldini, who played in the same club for 20 years as a professional.

"I admire them because me I cannot do it, I get bored very quickly, maybe because I have other passions."
