Eric Cantona sings along to Liam Gallagher’s ‘Once’, his “song of the year”

Eric Cantona has uploaded a video of himself singing along to ‘Once’ by Liam Gallagher, with the former Manchester United legend stating the song is his favourite of 2019.

Posting on Instagram, Cantona can be seen tapping his foot along to the song. As the camera pans up, the ex-footballer is revealed to be singing along with his eyes closed, before finally pointing to the camera as the final word of the chorus is sung.

“When two Manchester legends meet,” he captioned the video. “« Once » my song of the year!” Watch the clip below.

Despite famously being a huge Manchester City fan, Gallagher himself received the praise warmly with a couple of social media posts of his own on Twitter.
