Cantona ended his career with seven league titles to his name, five of which came during his time in England.

Ratings Prediction

Cantona was a magician on the field, although his Pace attributes might be a bit lower than other ICONs.

We are also unsure of the position in which Cantona will play, and he will likely have positions from CAM, CF and ST in his range of cards.

MAGNIFIQUE! We can’t wait to use the French maestro on FIFA 21

Cantona’s base card will likely be rated 86 OVR, with a steady increase of 2 for each of his middle, prime and moments cards.

There are so many magic moments from Cantona’s career, but THAT chip and the iconic celebration against Sunderland has got to be up there for his ICON Moments card!

Best Links

For Cantona to have green links on FUT 21 you will need French players, and there are plenty to choose from!

The current World Champions have great options in almost every position, making it easy to form the perfect chemistry with Cantona.

The likes of Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann can play ahead of him, or Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante behind!

Even in the wide areas you have the likes of Kingsley Coman and Ousmane Dembele to provide pace. This shows that Cantona will suit almost any team, hybrid or not.
