Eric Cantona has left the football world in a state of confusion after his bizarre speech at the UEFA Champions League draw.

The Frenchmen was in attendance at the draw to pick up the President's Award, rocking up to the stage in a bright red shirt and flat cap.

He then proceeded to quote Shakespeare's King Lear and waffle on about human cells.

He said: "As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods. They kill us for their sport."

"Soon the science will be able to slow down the ageing of the cells, to the state. Soon we will become eternal.

"Only accidents, crimes, wars, will still kill us.

"Unfortunately, crimes, wars, will multiply. I love football. Thankyou."

The Manchester United icon was supposedly trying to give out a warning about the state of mankind however, he left many in the audience including Ronaldo and Messi baffled by his words.

The reaction on Twitter mirrored that of those in attendance.

Certainly not one to shine away from the spotlight, or stay out of the headlines, Cantona once again stole the show on a night that saw Virgil van Dijk pick up the UEFA Player of the Year award.
