Crystal Palace Bans Eric Cantona Masks on 10-Year Anniversary of Infamous Kung Fu Kick

By RivalsDM - The English Premier League's Manchester United have been warned by Crystal Palace that any visiting fans wearing Eric Cantona masks at Selhurst Park for this Saturday's match will be ejected.

It has been a decade since Man U's forward Cantona launched the infamous kung-fu kick at Crystal Palace fan Matthew Simmons who taunted him from the stands.

That infamous kick that was replayed around the world saw the Frenchman landed with an eight month suspension and threatened with a prison sentence.

A section of the Red Devils' supporters have designated the upcoming Saturday's encounter with Crystal Palace as 'Cantona Day' and have threatened to wear the masks in honor of their hero at the match.

However in an official statement Crystal Palace have confirmed that: "Any supporter visiting Selhurst Park on Saturday will not gain admission to the stadium or will be ejected from the ground if they are in possession of any kind of face mask."
