‘It can’t be unseen!’ Man Utd legend Cantona posts bizarre Instagram vid of penis cracking egg
The ever-enigmatic Frenchman is known for some bizarre musings and social media posts, but took things to another level with his latest Instagram offering.
The distinctly NSFW post features Cantona initially looking straight-faced into the camera, before it pans down to show a tablet he is holding.
The former United star then presses play on the device, which shows a video of a man cracking an egg with his penis.
We’ve declined to share the video with you here due to its explicit nature, and it has since been removed from the Frenchman’s account (although for those so inclined, a simple internet search will no doubt provide footage).
The 52-year-old was soon trending on social media, with fans left open-mouthed by such a seemingly random offering even by the standards of a man known for his cryptic ruminations.

It may well have been some kind of reference to tonight’s impending Manchester derby, where United take on a City team chasing a second consecutive title - at least that's what some Twitter users joked.

Pep Guardiola’s team are locked in a battle at the top of the table with United’s bitter rivals Liverpool, leaving some of the Old Trafford faithful with the conundrum of potentially wanting the team to lose to avoid handing the title race advantage to Liverpool.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are looking to bounce back from a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Everton at the weekend.
