Former Manchester United player Eric Cantona has launched a bid to become the president of France. The eccentric striker has written to mayors requesting that they nominate him for the contest to be held on 22 April, with a possible run-off on 6 May.
Planning to make housing a major theme of his campaign, he claims he was motivated to enter the contest due to his “keen sense of [his] responsibility to a time when our country is in front of difficult choices”.
Scrapbook trusts the 45 year-old he has learned to control his temper:
“Ooh ahh! Voix pour moi!”
