Cantona Told Non

PARIS () -- Eric Cantona, the talented but Manchester United temperamental striker, was not named to the French Euro 96 team as French coach Aime Jacquet announced his squad for the competition in England this summer.


Cantona was French captain and was selected for the French squad 49 times, but he has not played for France since his kung fu-style attack on a Crystal Palace fan while playing for Manchester United in January last year.


"This French team has lived and won without him. This is a team that plays well, that feels good together," Jacquet said on Europe 1 radio on Sunday. "There's a choice to make. I made it. It wasn't an easy choice, and I assume the responsibilities."
