Cantona may have failed to attract the attention of OM, but at fourteen-and-a-half was still good enough to be considered for selection in this context. The then technical adviser for the Marseilles region, Henri Émile, had been in touch with Célestin Oliver, who had warmly recommended Cantona for inclusion in a ‘Mediterranean squad’, a group of thirty-five players who were then separated into two teams, the ‘possibles’ and the ‘probables’. To his amusement, Émile, who would become one of the most pivotal figures in Cantona’s career, can’t remember which of these two teams the boy was assigned to.

As he told a French journalist in 1993: ‘My luck is that I have kept the spirit of street football. In the street, when I was a minot [‘a lad’, in the patois of Marseilles], if a player had a red shirt, and I had it too, we played together, in the same team. There was no strategy, no tactics. Only improvisation. And pleasure. What I have kept from this time is pleasure, the uncertainty of the result, and spontaneity. ’ Not everyone shared these convictions, as he was to discover later.

To his own parents, Marseilles had been what the New World represented for the Italians who could save enough to pay for their passage overseas. Money was hard to come by; when winter came, with no electricity, proper heating or running water, Lucienne had to cook pasta in melted snow; but her husband’s energy and the fierceness of her determination overcame shortcomings like these and, slowly, a house rose from the dust.
