Manchester United icon Eric Cantona has named Leeds and Liverpool hero Gary McAllister as the best player he ever worked alongside.

The Frenchman joined the Red Devils from arch-rivals Leeds United and it is the Manchester club where he spent his most prolific period as a player.

It is, however, a man he won the First Division title with at Leeds that Cantona considers to be the finest he had the pleasure of working with.

He made that revelation during a Q&A session at his one-man show in Bournemouth on Tuesday.

Cantona spent nine months with the Scot at Elland Road in 1992, tasting title success as part of a talented team pieced together by Howard Wilkinson.
