Now it’s the cry­ing game for Can­tona

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

SOC­CER bad boy Eric Can­tona has ad­mit­ted he’s ac­tu­ally a big CRY BABY!

The ex-manch­ester United hard-nut was fa­mously banned from footy for nine months af­ter per­form­ing a kung-fu kick on Crys­tal Palace fan Matthew Sim­mons when he was sent off in a match in 1995.

But French hero Can­tona, 45, says he has now turned into a blub­bing softie.

The player-turnedac­tor (above) re­vealed: “I cry a lot.

“It proves to me that I’m a hu­man be­ing with­out ar­mour.

“I want to feel alive what­ever I do.”

Hard-tack­ling for­mer Leeds ace Can­tona was shown a whopping six red cards dur­ing his Premier League play­ing days which ran from 1992 to 1997.

That works out at a dis­missal once ev­ery 24 games.

The as­pir­ing thesp’s lat­est flick Switch has just been re­leased on DVD.
