Man Utd legend slams Henry

Cantona was left unimpressed by Thierry Henry’s handball that set up France’s winning goal in their play-off victory over Ireland on Wednesday.

“What shocked me most wasn’t the handball, honestly,” said Cantona.

“What shocked me most was that at the end of the match, in front of the television cameras, this player (Henry) went and sat down next to an Irish player to console him, even though he’d screwed them three minutes earlier.

“If I’d been Irish, he wouldn’t have lasted three seconds.”
