Eric Nearly Quit Football

Eric was one of the best football players, and he played for a well-known team, Manchester United, for a long time. 

His football career was not easygoing, and there was a time when he almost quit football while he was playing for Manchester

Eric was banned from training and playing for a specific time, and he felt left out during that time. 

He thought of quitting football and returning to France. However, the Manchester manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, knew his capabilities and wasn’t willing to let him give up. 

So Alex personally went to Paris and talked to Eric

Alex knew how much Eric loved football, so they talked him out, treated him like a young player, and brought him back. 

Eric Kicked A Fan

In 1995, Eric was all over the news after kicking a fan during the match. 

His kick was named Kung Fu Kick, and he had a valid reason for his action. 

He was playing in the match when a Crystal Palace fan called out to him and cursed him verbally. 

That fan was racist and was telling Eric to go back to his country, France

Not only that, he also called out Eric's mom a French whore, which made the player angry, and he went right to the fan and kicked him. 

After his past action, Eric was also arrested and kept in prison for a fortnight. He later got bail from the jail. 

However, his action did bring consequences, and he was also banned from playing and had to pay a fine. 

Eric Lost His Passion For Football

Eric started playing football when he was young. 

He became one of the best players and got into football to express himself. 

He played for a long time, but when he was 30, he shocked everyone by retiring from football. 

Eric said his decision to retire from football was due to his lack of passion. 

He lost his passion for football; if someone has to be the best in a football career, they must have 100% passion for it. 

He started seeking passion for other things and expressed himself on those things. 

He knew that even if he had played after losing passion, he wouldn’t be able to focus and give his best, so his best decision was to retire. 

Eric Loves Music

Eric came to the spotlight as a footballer, but over the years, he has shown many qualities of him. 

He is acting now, writing songs, painting, and doing many things. He realized that music was not something he got into over time. 

He has always been a music lover, and since he was born, he has been into music. 

He feels that music created him and everyone. As a kid, he grew up listening to Oprah and classical songs because his dad preferred those songs. 

He listened to Six Pistols and The Clash. He then slowly got into live music and started buying live music.
