“Fortunately, Old Trafford is still Old Trafford. Anfield is still Anfield,” Eric Cantona told The Athletic when discussing the stadiums of Man United and Liverpool.
“But can you imagine Old Trafford becomes a new stadium called by a brand? If one day they do that, I am sorry but I am not a fan of United anymore. And I quit football forever!
“But please, don’t call this stadium Nestle, or Amazon, please. Old Trafford is Old Trafford.”
This comes after Barcelona renamed their iconic stadium to ‘Spotify Camp Nou’ earlier this deal after selling their stadium naming rights to the music streaming platform.
United have been the hosts of Old Trafford since 1910 and any alteration to its name means that not only Cantona, but a number of fans will stop supporting the club.
