Manchester United legend Eric Cantona is impressed by the strength of the current squad.

Cantona was in Manchester last week to see the unveiling of Sir Alex Ferguson's statue outside of Old Trafford.

"Last season United lost the league in the last minute. Sometimes that happens, but they are still a top team and a top team in Europe," Cantona told Inside United, on sale on 5 December.

"They are as strong as years before and it's great to see Ferguson create a new generation of players. He has spent over 25 years at the club and there have been so many generations. It's not only generations of players, but generations of people."
