Football legends Pele and Cantona visit Singapore Sports school

SINGAPORE: Football legends Pele and Eric Cantona, together with American football star Cobi Jones, Cosmos Associate Director of Football, dropped in at the Singapore Sports School to officially open the re-turfed football pitch. The school pitch was opened six years ago and needed upgrading. Besides gracing the opening, and showing off their football skills, part of their visit was also to share their secrets with the students. Cantona also spoke of his ex-boss, Manchester United's Alex Ferguson and the impact on the club when he steps down. "He is one of the best managers of all time in the world", said Cantona of Ferguson, "(after he leaves) it will be very, very difficult". Pele and Eric Cantona are in Singapore for the New York Cosmos 2011 Asia Tour.
