It makes France the second most-represented country in the competition after England.
The scorer of the Premier League's first hat-trick, Cantona moved to Manchester United in the inaugural season and went on to win four titles as he racked up a combined total of 126 goals and assists in 156 matches.
His Premier League medal collection has only been bettered by Patrice Evra among his countrymen, the Man Utd left-back lifting the PL Trophy five times in seven seasons.
Thierry Henry won the Golden Boot four times, more than any other player, and jointly holds the record for the most Player of the Season awards, with two. His total of 20 assists in 2002/03 is a mark that has not been bettered.
