This past Wednesday, police reports confirmed that Manchester United legend Eric Cantona had been arrested for assault in London. Cantona was involved in a bust up in the Primrose Hill area before he was arrested and then cautioned.
The victim didn’t need any medical attention, as it still remains unclear whether charges will be pressed against the United legend. This isn’t the first time he was charged, as in 1996 he was convicted of assault for kicking a Crystal Palace fan.
And fans on Twitter reacted in the only way they know how….
Has Cantona got something against Londoners??

Cantona gets arrested and Hoeness sentenced to 3 years in prison? Messi should look at this and be warned. #PayYourTaxes

I’d actually feel blessed if Cantona assaulted me! I’d ask him to do it again!
