The Moment 'King' Eric Cantona Returns To The Old Trafford Pitch

'King' Eric Cantona returned to the Old Trafford pitch during Soccer Aid 2018.

The Manchester United hero managed the World XI side against England.

But in the second half, the iconic Frenchman had enough of watching from the touchline.

So he drafted himself on by replacing Yaya Toure, and received a standing ovation from the United faithfuls.

What a moment.

King Eric.
