Cantona: “He Is What Manchester United Needs”

By on August 5, 2011

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona believes Wesley Sneijder is the right signing for Sir Alex Ferguson.

The charismatic Frenchman played over 180 games for the Premiership champions and has joined the chorus of praise for the Inter Milan ace as United’s interest in the midfielder intensifies ahead of the new season.

Sneijder’s £30million to Old Trafford has been well documented this summer and the former French forward sees similarities with the former Real Madrid midfielder.

“He is what Manchester United needs. There’s no-one like him right now,” said Cantona.

‘He’s strong. Sometimes he reminds me of myself.”

    I luv Eric with all my heart. But u sometimes wonder how much football he watches these days. I don’t see alot of Eric in Wesley.
    I’m not sayin sneijder is a bad player, or that we don’t need him. But he isn’t a bit like Eric in anyway.
