image for Mon Dieu, Messieur Cantona fails in his bid to prove French banks are corrupt, he didn't have the money!
Mon dieu's fav action, Kung Fu Kicking, maybe he should have landed one or two at the French banks!

Ex Man United football genius, legend, filmstar, poet, artist and enfant terriblé has failed in his bid to convince the French public that all French banks are corrupt (and the others too)!

Eric, who's name still rings out at United home games maybe was the greatest player ever to grace Old Trafford, but his political efforts are "tres petit" in comparison.

He asked every French citizen to withdraw their money from the banking system because they are all corrupt (quite correct), unfortunately, he also attempted to withdraw his money and to his surprise, he was in the "RED" (excuse the pun!).

The French bank concerned obviously made it public that "Mon Dieu" was "tres blanco" knowing that their customers would not listen to an ex-pro footie player who has "grande illusions" about his political ambitions.

Eric has been left licking his wounds and wondering why the "Dieu" his bank account was empty, "tres terriblé" he thought, then he remembered:

He plundered his account, forgot to balance it out and then realised that the money had been slipped over the border into his Swiss bank account!

The French fiscal authorities are investigating!

A slight misdemeanor for an enfant terriblé, par de problem!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
