Eric Cantona is one of the greatest players to have graced the city of Manchester. Heck, he is one of the best players to have graced the English shores. He was inspirational for both Leeds United and Manchester United and took the Premier League by storm. Very few had the flair, natural talent and ability like him.
As inspirational as Eric Cantona was for Manchester United, he was prone to moments of absolute madness. Nothing got worse, than him kung fu kicking a Crystal Palace supporter.
Cantona was already sent off for his challenge on Crystal Palace defender Richard Shaw. While walking back towards the tunnel, Cantona completely lost it towards an abusing fan named Matthew Simmons and kicked him, followed by throwing several punches. Cantona was banned for 8 months for his actions.
This to this day remains one of the most controversial incidents in the Premier League and the most memorable incident of a player completely losing it on a fan.
