Man Utd icon Cantona slams Evra: Nothing like me. No-one's heard of him!

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has taken a swipe at Patrice Evra.

Former United captain Evra was banned - then sacked - by Olympique Marseille for attacking one of his own fans.

The incident has drawn comparisons with Cantona's kung fu charge on a Crystal Palace fan - which has left the Frenchman unimpressed.

He told FullTimeDevils: "I don't think it's very similar. He kicked a supporter of his own team and I kicked a hooligan of the opposite team, it's not the same. No I was in China spent two and half months there playing in a movie there and in China they don't speak about Evra.

"If he played for United maybe but not now he's in France. I know about it because everyone says to me 'have you seen it' but I haven't seen it, I don't care."
