Man Utd legend Cantona unimpressed by antics of Man City's Balotelli

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has slammed the antics of Manchester City's madcap striker Mario Balotelli.

Cantona says his own dramatic gestures, including the infamous kung-fu kick on a Crystal Palace fan, were spur-of-the-moment rather than pre-planned.

The Frenchman said: "I dreamt of being a footballer, of doing great things, of crying and laughing after a victory, of exploding with joy. It is about spontaneity.

"I never had anything on a T-shirt, never calculated anything. Every action is unique, every reaction unique."
