Eric Cantona's new look ahead of Manchester United anniversary

It would appear that Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has reverted back to one of his most famous looks after being spotted in the city sporting a shiny shaved head.

Nearly 25 years to the day that Cantona signed for United, the freshly cropped French legend was back on his old stomping ground.

Seeing Cantona all shaven and shorn will no doubt bring memories of the 1996-97 season flooding back for United fans of a certain vintage -- the season in which The King scored his famously nonchalant chip against Sunderland.

Good times (unless you happen to be former Black Cats goalkeeper Lionel Perez, of course).

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
