Former Manchester United player Eric Cantona has been voted best foreign ever in the Premiership, by readers of Four Four Two magazine.

Cantona finished ahead of two Arsenal players, Dutchman Dennis Bergkamp and another Frenchman, Thierry Henry.

The French are well represented, with no less than twelve players in the top 100. The Dutch follow with ten players.

Cantona, who began his career in France in 1983, joined Leeds United nine years later. After a short while, the forward moved to Manchester United where he would stay until the end of his career in 1997.

Cantona was overrated.

He played in the Premiership when it was very weak, remember Blackburn (winning league), Newcastle (RUp), A Villa (RUp), Norwich and C Place (3rd each!!). Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal were nobodies during his era.

In Europe he failed miserably as did all the other English clubs. Difference is the likes of Henry banged in goals when it was the best league, Cantona got a fair amount of goals when the EPL wasnt even in the top ten leagues. There you have it.
