I went to see Ken Loach's wonderful new film 'Looking for Eric' the other day. The memories came flooding back. Back in the day (1996) I was commissioned to shoot Cantona for a Nike campaign which ran during the Euro '96 championship. Hero worship has never been my thing but there really is something about Eric that leaves you a little weak at the knees. Unlike a few 'stars I could mention, he was charming, witty and fully involved himself in the task in hand.
Loach's film is a very funny tribute to one of football's real characters not to mention a heart warming reminder of the value of friendship. Do see it if you can.
