Both are great in their own rights. However, Eric Cantona had bigger influence on his team. Cantona was authoritative whereas, Bergkamp seemed to an all-good footballer.

@Manuel cantona retired at 30 because he believed he would start to decline and wanted to be remembered at his best... Think it was 97.. 2 years before the treble ... What a player.. When he same back from his 9 months ban he changed our season round, scored in nearly every game to win us the league..

On ability Dennis no doubt. He is so technically gifted and his brain range puts him up there with the best players (people may not agree but type of footballer in his mould that should b admired. Eric had a presence, he had talent but how he transformed Utd wasnt all his ability it was his presence and character that really led that Utd team

Both very classy players. But I'd choose Bergkamp not because of bias. But because he's also a very good playmaker

@Doozers20 Do you know why Cantona retired from football too young (I believe he was 30 if I am not wrong)? Because I do not think it was for injuries or something like that

@Doozers20 That is right, I readed that Eric changed Manchester United, and is an amazing player too, but this time I will choose Bergkamp.

@bricka I would choose Bergkamp, I was watching some video and wow, he has excellent skills!

As a player and talentwise bergkamp, Eric was more than that though, quality player in his own right, a leader that transformed united. If I was asked who I'd have in my team, I'd pick Eric more often.

I remember watching a football documentary which touched upon 'who was the greatest Dutch player of all time'? There was a panel of past Dutch legends and they all overlooked Cruyff and said that Bergkamp was the best. For me, he would be in the best team or at least squad of players I have seen. Fat Ronaldo, Schmeichel, Maldini, Messi, Carlos, the other Ronaldo, Zidane, Scholes, Iniesta etc...Bergkamp is in that category. Not so sure Cantona would make the grade!
