Eric Cantona has been arrested for assault in London after a ‘lunchtime altercation’ with a man in Primrose Hill, London, The Telegraph has reported.

In his playing days, Cantona never shied away from confrontation and that trend has clearly continued post-football.

A statement from the police said:”Police were called to Regents Park Road, NW1, at 12.55pm on Wednesday 12th March, following reports of an assault.

“Officers from Camden Borough attended and a man in his mid-40s was arrested on suspicion of common assault.

“He was taken into custody and subsequently cautioned for common assault.

“The victim, a man, did not require medical assistance at the scene.”

Back in 1995, Cantona was given 120 hours of community service and banned from playing football for eight months after that kick at Selhurst Park but now he has hit the papers again with this incident.
