The former Manchester United and French striker Eric Cantona has warned his former teammate that he is making a big, big mistake by promoting the World Cup in Qatar.
Speaking to The Athletic: “I would not do it at all. I do completely the opposite. In January 2022, I started to say that. Maybe I was the first one.
“But I am free to do it. And of course, an ex-player paid to do this kind of thing… It could be they don’t know what has happened there. Or, if they know it, I think they did wrong. I think they made a big mistake. A big, big mistake.”
Eric Cantona is boycotting the World Cup in Qatar and says he thinks David Beckham and others who promote it have made a big mistake.

He’s spot on Cantona, you have to admire the French man for his honesty.
