'Eric wanted to go sort out the cop... he insisted he'd "kill that f*****"': Cantona had to be restrained by Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United squad when he was punched in the head by a police officer after draw against Galatasaray, claims Roy Keane

Roy Keane has revealed how Eric Cantona went crazy and said he was was going to kill 'that f****r' after he was hit over the head by a police officer during Manchester United's infamous Champions League encounter at Galatasaray in 1993.

The Frenchman was sent off in the closing seconds for insulting Swiss referee Kurt Rothlisberger as the Red Devils were held to a goalless draw and went out on away goals following a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford.

Cantona was then knocked down the steps to the tunnel by a policeman as 'all hell broke loose' and Bryan Robson's elbow was gashed by a riot shield and he required six stitches.
