Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he decided to sign club legend Eric Cantona after a bath with his players.
In another extract from his new book Leading, the retired Scotsman explains how bathing with the likes of Steve Bruce and Gary Pallister gave him the idea to look into signing the Frenchman.
"Listening provides an understanding of who people really are and what makes them tick," Ferguson writes.
"After a game against Leeds United in 1992, I was in the bath with the players, which was highly unusual for me.
"Listening to their analysis of the match, Steve Bruce and Gary Pallister were raving about Eric Cantona, the French striker Leeds had signed from Nimes. Bruce was particularly complimentary about Cantona's abilities.
"Somehow, those comments planted a seed, which soon afterwards led us to signing Eric from Leeds United. And we all know how that turned out!
"Listening, even just for a few moments, led to a decision that changed the landscape for Manchester United."
Ferguson signed Cantona the following year, and the Frenchman went on to score 82 goals in 185 appearances for the Red Devils, lifting four Premier League titles and two FA Cups along the way.
