Cantona: The Rebel Who Would Be King

Cantona: The Rebel Who Would Be King, Philippe Auclair

Philippe Auclair’s book is simply stunning.  I cannot recommend it highly enough.  Part football history, part social commentary, part psychology—all amazing.  Philippe’s narrative examines Cantona’s life in total, looking forwards and backwards, while moving through his achievements and failures.  I learned so much about French Football history and the rise of United at the dawn of the Premiership and about the player’s motives and actions.  Couldn’t put it down and can’t wait to read it again.
