Revue de presse

'Here, at last, is a definitive account of Cantona's extraordinary life...Auclair writes with an elegance most native sportswriters might envy...A truly great book...' --GQ<br /><br />`An imaginative and groundbreaking book' --Kevin McCarra, Guardian<br /><br />'At once elegant and exhaustive... This book, about an outstanding gifted footballer by an outstandingly accomplished journalist. A tour de force.' --Brian Glanville, World Soccer<br /><br />`A meticulously detailed examination of a fascinating character... an unusual book, one that might just usher in a new age of football biography.`
--Jonathan Wilson, 4-4-2 Magazine

'a fascinating portrait of an exquisitely talented and intelligent but also petulant and arrogant man who illuminated and perhaps changed for ever the British game.' --The Times

'The enigma of ''King Eric'' has never before been dissected with such scientific precision and presented with such humour and understanding… Masterful and absorbing' --Irish Independent

Présentation de l'éditeur

'An artist, in my eyes, is someone who can lighten up a dark room. I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970, and the poetry of the young Rimbaud' Eric Cantona

Football, and art. Eric Cantona - legend, maverick, troubled artist or just plain trouble - never saw a need to make a distinction between the two. For all the heat and noise surrounding his infamous Crystal Palace 'kung-fu kick', it is for the sheer exuberant beauty of his play that Eric Cantona is chiefly remembered by English football fans. At Leeds United he transformed the team into title contenders, but became a true talisman at Manchester United, where to this day fans sing of 'King Eric'. And yet the effortless style of Cantona's play could not hide a darker side to his temperament. In his own words, 'I play with passion and fire. I have to accept that sometimes, this fire does harm.'

Leading French football journlist Philippe Auclair has interviewed over 200 key protagonists in Cantona's career, searching for the man behind the myth. Marrying a deep knowledge of Cantona's impact on the pitch with soulful, pin-sharp insight into the heart and inner thoughts of this most complex of characters, this is nothing less than the definitive biography of a one-time rebel of the French game, who rose to be the King of Old Trafford.

'I'd give all the champagne I've ever drunk to be playing alongside Cantona in a big European match at Old Trafford' George Best

Par denis85
Excellente bigraphie de King Eric qui pour moi m a permis de decouvrir son parcours et son sentiment sur les differentes etapes de ce joueur adule en angleterre mais relativement sous estime en france au vu de ce qu il a accompli.

Bonne lecture!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fair and Balanced Portrait of the Second King of the Stretford End 31 janvier 2010
Par N. Turner - Publié sur Amazon.com
'The Rebel Who Would Be King' chronicles the life of Eric Cantona from his days as a child in Marseilles, to his 'death' -- Cantona's retirement from football in 1997. Though he has taken an admitted liking to Cantona, Philippe Auclair's (an Arsenal fan himself) work stays away from the territory of shallow footballer biographies with their one sided celebration of achievements, instead opting to fully tell of the events (ranging from spectacular to spectacularly horrendous) that contributed to the making of Cantona as a footballer and more importantly, as a man.

Manchester United fans who were around during the Cantona years will enjoy revisiting that time, along with the preceding strokes of luck that brought Eric to Manchester in the first place. (I should note that Eric doesn't make it to Manchester until well into the book; there's a lot that took place before his arrival at Old Trafford, or Elland Road for that matter.) Younger fans will gain a greater appreciation for the man who was such a catalyst in the revitalization of Manchester United as a footballing force. Readers who enjoy (sport) biographies of interesting figures will likely be entertained by this detailed yet well paced telling of events public and personal along with the varied views of people along the way . . . Brian Clough's reaction to the kung-fu kick was, well, very Clough-esque.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cantona { black or white} 9 avril 2012

CANTONA,When you read this book you will discover what makes ERIC the star that he was, and the man that he was. Once you treated him with respect and showed that he was wanted Cantona would do anything for you.In Cantona world every thing was black or white, if you kicked him,he would kick you back.When ERIC got suspended by they French football authority he got 2 matches,he though this was on fair just because of who he was, as every one else who done the same thing had got only one match,so he went up to the 3 officals and shouted into their faces one by one, IDIOT,he then got 4 matches that was ERIC, Strange Man, Fantastic footballer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 even seagulls will love this 5 mai 2013
Par Brian Maitland - Publié sur Amazon.com
The man, the myth, the legend. It's all here in a very candid look at the entirety of Manchester United legend Eric Cantona's career. The best parts of his life story I found were his time in the French League prior to moving to the UK. We learn the hows and whys he was dropped from the French national team. I also loved the fact even after his transfer from Leeds United to Manchester United, he and his family continued to live in Leeds.

My copy has a sticker on it saying it was the "Best Football Book--British Sports Book Awards 2010."
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cantona 20 juin 2014
Par GS4815 - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was too young to witness the genius that was Eric Cantona - he retired in 1998 and my experience with his abilities were limited to Nike campaigns and youtube compilations. Philippe Auclair provides a fascinating and complicated portrait of a man whose behavior, temperament, and personality did not allow for simple description. From his beginnings as a supremely talented teenager hailing from Marseille through his trials and tribulations in his adopted homeland (Manchester, England), Cantona defied convention. Auclair goes to great lengths to describe Cantona - a man who was equally at home hunting alone with his dogs as he was punishing defenders at Old Trafford. Eric Cantona is many things - Phillipe Auclair has produced an excellent account of Cantona the man and Cantona the footballer.

Title should be "Rebel who was King!!" An Iconoclast if there ever was one.
Great writing details the man.
