Despite his life-long affiliation with Manchester City, Liam Gallagher has chosen Old Trafford legend Eric Cantona to star in the latest video-clip for the second single, "Once" from the Why Me? Why Not album.

Eric Cantona attends Sidaction Gala Dinner 2020 At Pavillon Cambon on January 23, 2020 in Paris, France.

On the former French international starring in the video, Gallagher stated via his Twitter account: "I’m absolutely thrilled to have Eric Cantona, the last Rock n roll footballer, star in my video for ‘Once’. Songs like this don’t come around very often and neither do football players like him".

Last December, Cantona shared an Instagram video of himself singing along to the track soon after the album's release with the message: “When two Manchester legends meet,” he captioned the video. ‘Once’ my song of the year!”.
