A video of Eric Cantona first made social networks shudder this Thursday in the early afternoon. The ex-King of Manchester United announced that he would be the next coach of the Manchester United club on Instagram. “I wanted to tell you exclusively that I am the new coach of Manchester United.

The German Ralf Rangnick is a former member of the Red Bull group where he led Salzburg and Leipzig. He is currently at Lokomotiv Moscow as director of football. He must find an agreement with his employers to be released and obtain his work permit. In the meantime, it is the current interim Mickaël Carrick who will lead the shock against Chelsea on Sunday. Rangnick should therefore begin his short mission against Arsenal on Thursday, December 2.
