Thank you Eric Cantona

Heute vor 22 Jahren schrieb Eric Cantona Fußballgeschichte und machte sich unsterblich. Als Feldspieler von Manchester United kickte Cantona einen Nazi-Hooligan mit einem Kung-Fu-Sprung aus dem Stadion. Huge.

On this day in 1995, Manchester United footballing legend Eric Cantona kung fu kicked a fascist football hooligan, Matthew Simmons, during a match against Crystal Palace. Simmons, who attended far-right National Front and British National Party rallies and has a raft of violent convictions including attacking a football coach who called him „Nazi scum“, allegedly heckled Cantona as a „foreigner“.
