Eric Cantona is back with one of his comical Eurosport videos and this time Manchester City defender John Stones is in his line of verbal fire.

Former Manchester United star Cantona has provided a series of social media hits in his self appointed role as the Commissioner of Football and he didn’t hold back as he let rip into City’s fumbling defender Stones.

As he reflected on City’s Champions League exit at the hands of Monaco, Cantona offered up this comical reason to explain why £50m signing Stones looked so troubled as he tried to quell the attacking threat of Monaco’s forward line.

“We now know why John Stones was so expensive,” declared Cantona. “Because he comes with a fully equipped trailer that he pulls behind him when he plays!”

Cantona was also cutting in his criticism of Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who appeared to dive to win penalties in his side’s thrilling 6-5 Champions League comeback win against Paris Saint-Germain.

“For some, it was a miracle on grass,” said Cantona of Barca’s round of 16 victory. “For others it was the heist of the century. Either way, it was epic.

“Suarez is not a biter any more, he’s a diver. Not a very good one, way too dramatic. This is football porn. Kids should not be allowed to watch.”
