'Eric Cantona' song lyrics from Manchester City fans feature lyrics sung about Man United legend

A Manchester City supporter has taken to social media after the City fans brandished the same type of banners as Manchester United supporters.

There was a Manchester United pre-season shirt found in The Courtyard near the Etihad Stadium in 2014, and copies of it have since been seen hanging from various fans' shoulders at City's most recent games.

In the latest music video for Liam Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Eric Cantona is at the centre of another strange incident.

The City fans cheer while Cantona holds a little girl and they sing their name - but it is Liam Gallagher that will be compared to the Manchester United legend

The body is on its knees as the blonde woman counts fingers in front of them while a small child is at her side.

The imagery is instantly recognisable and the Man City fans then sing 'this bit is about Eric Cantona' - with one of the trickiest pieces of poetry in the long list of song lyrics 'little girl' thrown in.

Although they certainly mean Cantona, it is the former France international who will be the most mentioned in their references - perhaps a touch of history.

However, the most popular version is 'off you come, off you come, off you come.'

The fans continue to sing before a dark figure, shrouded in a black cloak, enters the video.

And while the song talks about the former Manchester United man, some people took to social media to compare his music video to the brand of A/C fans who waved the banner throughout the Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund.

TIMELINE of Cantona's long journey to Manchester How did Eric Cantona reach Manchester City? On January 11, 1981, Eric Cantona started his controversial spell at Manchester United. After eight months, he went back to Marseille in an £8m deal. However, after signing for Chelsea, he returned to Old Trafford the following summer. After scoring against Wimbledon in the 1998 Carling Cup Final, his career was beginning to turn sour. 'Chosen one', the nickname given to Cantona at United, was well-received by fans, but his attitude and attitude were questioned. Eventually, things came to a head when he was accused of headbutting a Crystal Palace fan. His reaction led to his dismissal from United after just 55 minutes of the 1997 Community Shield against Chelsea. When Cantona eventually left United in 2000, when Aston Villa bought him for £5m, his form continued to dip. After winning the Premier League three times, he was selling off for £1.7m. However, Cantona is one of the most-celebrated footballers in history, winning four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups and the Champions League. After winning the 1999 Champions League, he was stripped of the award due to his bust-up with Crystal Palace fans. The incident was believed to have been his final act at United. Now, 18 years on, Cantona has been reunited with the Old Trafford faithful.

Another said: ' Judas'
