Cantona said the Dutch manager's philosophy fits perfectly with the club - and described United as "kings of the city" following their 4-2 derby triumph over Manchester City on Sunday.
The former France and United striker told a press conference ahead of the Laureus Sports Awards in Shanghai: "United's a great club, so sometimes you have a season when you have to lose games and you finish fourth, fifth
But it's a great club
It will be at the top of the table.
"And they came back and next year they can win the league
With a manager from Holland, it seems to be important for Manchester United because it's the same kind of philosophy for the game: Holland and Manchester United."
Asked whether he would consider managing Manchester United, he added: "No, I think today they've found the right one
He's a good one.
"It was great to win the derby
I was proud and very glad
It's good because now they are the kings of the city
The two clubs are two of the best clubs in England, so it's very important to win this game."
Cantona also claimed, controversially, that it was Catalonia rather than Spain that won two European Championships either side of the 2010 World Cup.
He said: "Catalonia won
Because they won with 10 players from Barcelona
My grandparents are from Catalonia, from Barcelona
They arrived in France in '39
There was a civil war
So, I am very proud of Barcelona and all that they have done."
Asked if Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi was the best player in the world, Cantona made a surprise choice - Argentina international Javier Pastore from Paris St Germain.
He added: "For me, today, the best player in the world, the most exciting player in the world, is Pastore from Paris St Germain
Why? Because I watched two games just to see Pastore playing, giving passes
He has got something special
Because football is interactive
It's why footballer is so popular, I think
And Pastore can do things that the other ones don't know.
"It's interactive but he does things that surprise you every time
Not only in scoring goals, spectacular goals - everything
He's a very creative player
He's the most creative player, I think, in the world today
It's why I think he's the best player in the world, because I love this kind of player."
