Manchester United legend has served up another brilliant Euro 2016 video - and this time he is making an appeal to be the next England manager.

In his fictional role as "Commissioner of Football" with Eurosport, the former French international is creating viral videos that have been one of the highlights of Euro 2016.

His “Will Grigg’s On Fire” chant last week was a fitting tribute to the lesser used Northern Ireland striker and now he has served up a video clip with an equally powerful message.

"Unexpected exit from Europe, quickly followed by a resignation," he said reflecting on the UK's decision to leave the European Union and the demise of Prime Minister David Cameron, before he turned his thoughts to their Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Iceland.

"It is true history has repeated itself in the last few days. Shame, humiliation, worst day in history.....strong words.

"The federation is already looking for the next manager and I hard the call. The self appointed Commissioner of Football declares his candidacy.

"I, Eric Cantona, potential future manager of England promise never to lose against a small frozen Island where the goal keeper is a movie director and the assistant coach is a dentist."

His rant continues in glorious fashion, in what is another moment of viral video magic:
