Despite his 1995 action against a crystal Palace fan where he kicked the fan, a development that led to his 9 months ban, former Man Utd forward Eric Cantona has been named in Premier League Hall of Fame after fans' vote;

The Frenchman won four league titles in his five seasons at Old Trafford; Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry were the first players given the honour last month

The honour recognises players who have demonstrated an exceptional record of on-pitch success and have made important contributions in the division since its creation in 1992.



I am very happy and very proud and at the same time, I am not surprised!" said 54-year-old Cantona, who described himself as the "exception" among the shortlist of nominees.

"Of course, to play in England was a dream. It is a dream of everybody to play in the Premier League.
