Manchester United legend Eric Cantona was awarded the UEFA President’s Award for his stellar commitment to charity and other causes after a wonderful playing career with the Red Devils.
However, his acceptance speech was cryptic to say the least, as he seemed to discuss science, ageing, cells, wars, crimes and what not! Twitter was understandably lost in translation.

🗣 “Soon science will not only be able to slow down the ageing of cells, it will fix cells and so we will become eternal. Only accidents, crimes, wars will kill us but unfortunately crimes and wars will multiply. I love football. Thank you.” pic.twitter.com/UifGiyPQTj
