The former United star posted a brief message on his Instagram profile making his view on the new proposed breakaway Super League quite clear.

Cantona said: “I would like to say something about the European Super League. Since one year, we have been able to watch games with the best clubs in the world and best players in the world, and it is so boring. Because the fans are not there, the fans singing, jumping, supporting their teams.

“The fans are the most important thing in football. Did the big clubs ask fans what they thought about this idea. No, unfortunately, and that is a shame.”
