Patrice Evra thanks Eric Cantona for 'opening the door' at Manchester United to French players

Patrice Evra has thanked former Manchester United player Eric Cantona for "opening the door" to French players at Old Trafford.

Cantona became the club's first French player when he made the switch from Leeds in 1992, and became a fan favourite in the five years he spent at United.

The story is too old to be commented.

Unfortunately Evra has been the only good French player other than Cantona to join United.

Silvestre, Blanc, Saha.
