Interesting to read that an idol of ours has a new vocation in life!

Eric Cantana, who left Manchester United 14 years ago has been appointed ‘director of soccer` at the famous New York Cosmos.

But it appears to be a job with a catch as the New York Cosmos are not the side they were back in their heyday, in fact they, currently, have no team and no stadium.

However, that hasn`t stopped Eric from taking up a unique challenge with the Frenchman remarking to the media,

“It`s a wonderful project. It`s a kind of mix between football and art.”

“The Cosmos are very strong, beautifully made, with a great past.”

“I will do everything that I can to help us find our way to regain the number one position in the United States, and then for us to become one of the best clubs in the world over the coming years.”


There`s certainly no lack of ambition from somebody who, with his unique style of play, enthralled us all.
