Cantona to see police this week

Eric Cantona was back in Manchester yesterday for a meeting with his club's solicitor, Maurice Watkins.

United step in the right direction

FA to take `swift action' : FOOTBALL

The Football Association last night promised rapid action against Eric Cantona. A statement said: "The FA are appalled by the incident that took place by the side of the pitch at Selhurst Park.

Football: Euro show on road with 590 days to go: Publicity for Euro 96 has begun in earnest. Guy Hodgson reports

The slogan being pushed was simple: Euro 96. It was on the posters, it was on badges. Old Trafford's press room must have had a thousand different references to it when the reams of paper were taken into account. But another little word kept intruding on the consciousness: why?

Football: Venison for the main course

INTERESTING bloke, Terry Venables. He has got this great gift of plausibility. Having made the recall of John Barnes - which was both unpredicted and unpopular - sound like the most obvious thing in the world, he may now be working on a justification for giving Barry Venison his international debut against the United States next week.

Football: Ince signs new deal: United dynamo heals rift

PAUL INCE has finally pledged his future to Manchester United by signing a new three-year contract, thus ending a long-running dispute with the club chairman Martin Edwards.

Football: Ince must sign or leave: United warn pay rebel

PAUL INCE, arguably the best midfield player in England over the last two seasons, was given a warning by Manchester United yesterday in language that stopped only just short of an ultimatum. Stripping away the diplomatic facade, it said: sign a new contract or leave.

Football: Daley set to be Taylor's first buy

GRAHAM TAYLOR'S image of the Wolverhampton Wanderers team who he intends to take into the Premiership next season began to take shape yesterday when he agreed a fee with Aston Villa for Tony Daley and released nine players on free transfers, writes Guy Hodgson.

Football / FA Cup Final: Cantona's mercurial class: Trevor Haylett on the Frenchman who took his time before seizing his chances

FOR an hour at Wembley before he was able to leave his spectacular imprint on the 113th FA Cup final, Eric Cantona was again a man apart. He has been so often this season but now Manchester United were concerned, their mercurial one confined to the margins of a stage he would later come to dominate.

Football: Luton's dismay

CERI HUGHES, Luton's Welsh international, collapsed in the dressing-room at half-time during the 2-0 home defeat by Wolves last night. Hughes did not reappear for the second half.

Football: Platt's command performance: Norman Fox studies the tactical success of a team imbued with a sense of perspective

EVEN in Graham Taylor's time, England occasionally played better than they did against Denmark last Wednesday. But it only ever looked like a happy accident. Terry Venables's instant achievement as coach was to create a sense that the team knew what they were about and, just as important, what he was about. Between them they gave a broad hint that England's recurring, damaging inability to win matches that really matter could at last be overcome.

Football: Ince's new injury doubt

AN X-RAY on the hand Paul Ince hurt in Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Chelsea has revealed no fracture. But the Manchester United midfielder has a groin strain and is doubtful for Wednesday's friendly against Denmark at Wembley.

Football: Infectious rottenness of racism

FOR reasons that should require no exposition, a great deal of embarrassment was felt in Israel recently when a black footballer, the Cameroon international Cyrille Makanaky of Maccabi Tel Aviv, had to endure a torrent of racist taunts throughout a match against Maccabi Haifa.
