Supporter's pug cosplays Red Devils legend.



A Manchester United supporter dressed up her pet dog as Eric Cantona by putting the pug in a ’90s team shirt with the collar turned up.

Cantona was the mercurial figurehead of Sir Alex Ferguson’s first few Premier League title-winning teams, scoring many an important goal along the way.


The upturned collar was his trademark look, not to mention the brooding air of defiance captured so effortlessly by the dog in this picture.

After signing from then-champions Leeds United in 1992, the Frenchman went on to score 82 times in 185 appearances during five seasons at Old Trafford.


He then abruptly announced his retirement in 1997 to focus on an acting career.

We await the unveiling of Paul Pugba with baited breath.
