Man Utd boss Ferguson: Tevez reminds me of Cantona

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has likened Carlos Tevez to Old Trafford legend Eric Cantona.

"Carlos reminds me of Eric Cantona in the way that he has a knack of rising to the occasion with a goal just when it's needed. He often comes up with the goods away from home when you are up against it. I don't think anything fazes him," said Ferguson ahead of tonight's clash with Olympique Lyon.

"I consider we are in a good position but not a decisive one. However, now that we have an away goal, our opponents will have to produce something very special to get past us."
