Manchester United legend Eric Cantona gave a bizarre acceptance speech at the
UEFA Champions League draw.

Naija News reports that the former Man United striker was handed the President’s Award from UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin during Thursday’s ceremony in Monaco to honour his illustrious playing career and charity work.

During his speech, Cantona quoted Shakespeare’s King Lear as part of a unique acceptance speech.

He said: “As flies to wanton boys, we are for the gods.
“They kill us for their sport.
Soon the science will not only be able to slow down the ageing of the cells – soon the science will fix the cells to the state. And so we will become eternal.

“Only accidents, crimes, wars will still kill us, but unfortunately crimes and wars will multiply. I love football. Thank you.”
