Fiery Frenchman Out

LONDON () -- French striker Eric Cantona Friday was suspended for the first three matches of the English Premier League season after being sent off in an exhibition game.


Cantona, who was expelled twice near the end of last season and missed five games, was sent off playing for Manchester United at Glasgow Rangers last week. He was shown the red card for a foul only 90 seconds after he was booked for dissent. Cantona is eligible to play in Sunday's Charity Shield game against Blackburn Rovers at Wembley but the fiery Frenchman will miss United's league games against Queens Park Rangers, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham.
