Fergie never had a go at Cantona - Andy Cole

[Saturday, October 10, 2009 ]

Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole claims Eric Cantona appeared immune from Sir Alex Ferguson's infamous "hairdryer treatment".

Cantona is widely regarded as having played a major talismanic role in the revival of the Red Devils as a footballing powerhouse and he enjoys iconic status at the club and in English football.

In an extract from Glory, Glory, a book written by Andy Mitten about United in the 1990s, and serialised in the Manchester Evening News, Cole said of the Frenchman: "He was the only player I saw who the manager never had a go at.

"We all went to a film premiere and were told to wear black ties. Eric turned up in a cream lemon suit with Nike trainers.

"The manager told him that he looked fantastic!"
