Eric Cantona gives his version of events after London arrest: ‘I had an altercation with a paparazzi, voila’

The London 1 is free: Eric Cantona is in ‘liberte’ after his arrest in London on Wednesday.

Speaking to the French press back on home soil, Cantona gave his version of events, explaining that he had an altercation with a paparazzi, ‘voila’.

‘The media described him as a ‘man’ to make it appear some random common assault; it was a paparazzi who I found to be too intrusive, that’s all.

It was a storm in a tea cup, so of course the media had to blow it all out proportion, calling him ‘a man’, making it all very fantastical, when it wasn’t at all.

Cantona also thanked everyone for all the messages of support, and lamented the fact that he’d caused much worry to his loved ones.
