12 GIFs of Cantona: #1 – The very beginning…

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Eric Cantona signing for Manchester United (26th November 1992), Beautifully Red will post 1 (maybe more if you are lucky) Eric Cantona GIF a day for a Twelve day celebration of Cantonas very best United moments.

On the fist GIF of Cantona, Beautifully Red gave to me…

…Erics first goal for the club!

Eric Cantona goal v Chelsea 19/12/1992

Eric Cantona signed for United on this day (Nov 26th) in 1992 after a phone call from current Champions, Leeds United, with regards to signing Denis Irwin turned into United making an offer for Cantona. A £1.2m deal was agreed and Cantona made his United debut as a substitute on the 6th December 1992 v Manchester City.
His first start followed a week later, a 1-0 win at home to Norwich and a week after that he opened his account for the Red Devils on his 2nd league start for the club. United were behind to a 67 minute David Lee goal when four minutes later Eric made his first mark on the club neatly finishing a lose ball inside the Chelsea penalty box.

No-one would have predicted what was about to happen over the next few years.

Check back tomorrow for the 2nd GIF of Cantona.
