Eric Cantona was a catalyst for Manchester United's dominance of the Premier League in the 1990s after his shock move from defending champions Leeds United early in the competition's inaugural 1992/93 campaign.

Cantona helped United to end their 26-year title drought that year, and they were Premier League champions four times in five seasons at Old Trafford before his retirement in May 1997.

The Frenchman inspired his team with his approach and his skill that brought plenty of magic moments, such as his sublime lob versus Sunderland in December 1996.
