"When I did the kung fu kick on the hooligan," the 44-year-old told the BBC's Football Focus programme when asked to name the highlight of his career.
"These kind of people don't have to be at the game. I think maybe it's like a dream for some, you know, sometimes to kick these kind of people.
I know it was an act of violence and we shouldn't condone such behaviour,(plus he was a manc at the time ) but it was well good wasn't it?
Kung Fu my arse, it was a reckless ill disciplined move that could have crippled him. This lot would not have been impressed and he would not have got his stars.
I’d like to see Eric roaming the wild west beating up n’er do wells and bigots carrying on like that. He wouldn’t last two minutes. And i doubt he could play the pipe
'These kind of people dont have to be at the game'
So its ok to have them behaving like cunts on the pitch? Or off of it in his case as he flew into the crowd. He'd have been banned for life if he wasnt a Manc at the time.
