Cantona Salary & Net WorthHow much did Eric Cantona earn?
Eric Cantona has a net worth of...
30 Million Euros (33.6 Million Dollars)
He was a showman on the field. A motivator and a leader, his game involved taking responsibility and getting the job done. Everyone took note of him when he moved to Manchester United in 1992. He made an immediate impact and helped the Red Devils to a Premier League title. It didn't surprise us when he became an actor after retiring from the sport in 1997. He was born to be in the spotlight. Acting has given him a platform to portray his creative side. He has also been involved with Nike after retirement. We think that his net worth is in the region of 30 million Euros.
Current JobWhat does Cantona currently do?
He doesn't shy away from a challenge. Acting takes a distinct set of skills to perfect, and he's doing ok, in our opinion. (Image: imgur.com)
The man doesn't care if you judge him. He does whatever makes him happy. That's something everyone can learn from this legend. (Image: imgur.com)
Kung Fu Kicker
We think that this was the moment that started the Kick out Racism campaign in football. Quite literally because the king literally tried to kick it out. It was at Selhurst Park, and our man had just been red-carded. He was on his way back to the dressing room, and then this giant oaf of an opposite fan throws a racist abuse at him. Some even say he did the Nazi salute. Not one to take racist insults lightly, he leaped over, and kung fu kicked the idiot, threw a couple of punches before being escorted into the tunnel. We think it was just the right reaction from the King. It has become an iconic moment since. (Image: imgur.com)
A casual shrug of the shoulders. Who celebrates like that? The king. That's who. The most nonchalant celebration in the history of the sport has to be this one. It was as if scoring a belter or a crazy goal where he'd beat like two or three defenders meant nothing to him. Well, on the contrary, we think it meant everything to him. It was a testament to the fact that he always knew that he could do it. It was just for the disbelievers out there. It conveyed a potent message to anyone that was taking notes. It was the ultimate expression of his artistry. (Image: imgur.com)
Love Life - Single, Girlfriend or Wife?
Eric Cantona Wife - Rachida Brakni
Rachida's having one of her hair days, we suppose. Has it been brushing him in the face? She's an actor by profession and the two work together sometimes. (Image: imgur.com)
Eric Cantona Wife - Rachida Brakni
She's his second wife, and they have two children together. The king was married to Isabelle Ferrer from 1987-2003 before tying the knot with the actress in 2007. (Image: imgur.com)
Family - Get to know them
Cantona Brother - Joel
Joel used to be a professional footballer too but gave up the sport to pursue acting. What's with all three men hanging their sunglasses on their shirts? Could they not find a place to slot the shades in or something? (Image: imgur.com)
Cantona Mother - Éléonore Raurich
That's the king as a baby. We think his mum knew that he was something special. (Image: imgur.com)
Cantona Dad - Albert
It's so heartwarming to see a fully grown man express his love for his parents. We're wondering how he got to be as tall as he is. Both mum and dad are on the shorter side. (Image: imgur.com)
Cantona Car - What does he drive?
Did he go about kicking racists on the street? Because that's not a movie set and he doesn't own a cop car. (Image: imgur.com)
One of the most generous gestures we've seen from him is the donation of this Rolls Royce to charity. It had some graffiti work done on it before it was auctioned. (Image: imgur.com)
House - Where does he live?
We think he'd make the perfect Santa. They should make another Home Alone movie, and he'd be a very good addition to the cast. If they do, they should let him kung-fu kick, someone. This place is somewhere in France, we think. (Image: imgur.com)
