The Frenchman was banned form football for nine months after kicking Crystal Palace supporter Matthew Simmons during a Premier League clash.

During a recent Q&A session in Manchester, the former Red Devils captain was asked if he regretted the incident.

"I've said before, I should have kicked him harder but maybe tomorrow I'll say something else," Cantona said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"I cannot regret it. It was a great feeling. I learned from it – I think he (Simmons) learned too.

"Nine months was a long time out and I struggled for a time, but thanks to Ferguson we won the double with a new generation."

The incident had many people talking for months on end, and the player was eventually sold by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
