Video: You Need to See a Bare-Chested Eric Cantona Signing ‘Will Grigg’s On Fire’

We now officially have a new favourite rendition of ‘Will Grigg’s on Fire‘ after Eric Cantona decided to record his own version.

In case you’ve not been on social media in the last two or three months, Wigan striker Grigg has became the subject of a viral chant amongst supporters, with fans all over the continent singing ‘Will Grigg’s on Fire’ to the tune of 1996 dance track ‘Freed From Desire’.

The campaign was started following Grigg’s outstanding form for The Latics as they won the English League One title, with the 24-year-old helping himself to 28 goals along the way, and made it all the way to the Euros after Northern Ireland called up Grigg to their full squad.

The forward is yet to play a minute of football at the tournament, but that hasn’t stopped fans from belting out the tune at every opportunity – including Cantona:

Brilliant, eh? Absolutely brilliant.

We’re fully aware the former Manchester United star was probably paid handsomely to record this, but still, it managed to raise a smile from us.
