Man Utd legend Cantona doesn't regret early retirement

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has no regrets over his early retirement.

Asked if he regretted retiring in 1997 when he sees the longevity of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, Cantona was adamant.

"Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are different to me.

"When I was 20 I gave interviews and said if I lose the passion, the fire, I will stop and try to do something else. But those that still play and still have the fire, it's good. I would have loved to have this fire forever and try to play forever. But I lost it and retired," he told the Mirror.
