Sports Letters: Reckless Eric

Sir: I find the appointment of Eric Cantona as the PFA's choice as Player of the Year quite incredible.

There can be no doubt that Cantona is a skilful and gifted player with undoubted flair who is a delight to watch and can also turn matches. But with such an appointment, more than great skills and flair are required. Players and commentators alike have been saying that foul play must be eradicated from the game yet here we have a player whose record is, to put it mildly, far from acceptable.

Yours faithfully,
