The social was set ablaze when a video surfaced online with Eric Cantona being declared the new replacement for sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking in a video uploaded to his official Instagram account on Thursday, Eric Cantona said: “Hello my friends.
“I would like to tell you in exclusivity that I am the new manager of Manchester United. I will tell you later the name of my great staff. See you soon.”
The legendary Frenchman, known for his unusual sense of humour, appears to be having fun on social media amid the Old Trafford managerial search.
