Former Manchester United star Eric Cantona has told Manchester City’s stars to stop complaining about Manchester and concentrate on winning trophies.

But he has also warned Roberto Mancini’s title hopefuls that United will continue to dominate – even without the retired Paul Scholes.

The French legend has returned to his spiritual home to help celebrate Scholes’s testimonial against New York Cosmos tomorrow night.

He enjoyed five years of incredible success at Old Trafford, winning four Premier League titles and two FA Cups from 1992-97.

And after hearing that Mario Balotelli this week joined Carlos Tevez in insisting he has struggled to settle in Manchester, Cantona said success on the pitch is what’s important.

“They don’t like the place?” he asked. “It depends where you come from. If they come from Milan, maybe.

“I don’t want to name other cities, but if their city is better then why did they come?

“I had a great time here, but the most important thing for me was to play for the best club in the world with the best players in the world.

“The most important thing is you are all professional players. You travel and you try to find a city you can enjoy, but the greatest time you can have is on the pitch.

“When I was in Manchester I loved the city and had a great time.”
