Presented and narrated by former Manchester United star Eric Cantona, Football Rebels is a five-part documentary on five football legends whose social conscience led them to use their fame and influence to challenge unjust regimes, join opposition movements and lead the fight for democracy and human rights in their countries.
"Football is more than the opium of the people. It's about good intentions, noble hearts .... When your country's at war, your friends are killing each other and children are given rifles rather than footballs, so what if the whole world admires you! You have to act."
