Eric Cantona believes he will one day manage Manchester United or England.

The 43-year-old Old Trafford legend is currently coach of the French beach soccer national team, but has set his sights on a much more high-profile job in the future.

"I will guide probably the strongest team in the world," he said. "I don't know how many years will go by before that happens but on the Manchester United bench my name is already written down. I'm not saying (Sir Alex) Ferguson will leave. I hope he will have eternal life with the Reds, I truly hope so. But for me the only alternative (to that of Manchester United) is guiding the England national team."

He added: "I like (England coach) Fabio Capello as a man and as a motivator.He transmits positive values.

"He is tough, precise and puts a lot of emphasis on attention to details. It's what was needed.

"But I can assure you that sooner or later you will see me guiding England because I have made history at Manchester United and I am number one."
