Former Manchester United star Eric Cantona has been chosen as recipient of the 2019 Uefa President's Award.
Cantona will join an illustrious list of previous winners which includes Sir Bobby Charlton, David Beckham, Alfredo Di Stefano and Eusebio.
Uefa said the award "recognises outstanding achievements, professional excellence and exemplary personal qualities."
And Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin, who selected Cantona for the award, paid a glowing tribute to the 53-year-old.
"This award not only recognises his career as a player of the highest calibre, but also honours him for the person he is - a man who refuses compromise, who stands up for his values, who speaks his mind and in particular puts his heart and his soul into supporting the causes he believes in," Ceferin said.
Cantona will receive the award in Monaco on Thursday, where the Champions League group stage draw is due to take place.

The former Manchester United striker Eric Cantona has been arrested and cautioned for assaulting a man in London.
Police were called to Primrose Hill in north London yesterday lunchtime. The Met Police said: "The victim, a man, did not require medical assistance at the scene."
An advert for Kronenbourg 1664 starring Marseille-born footballer Eric Cantona has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for "misleading" the public about its ties to France.
The advert - set in Alsace, a region in northern France - received two complaints that it implied hops used to produce the beer and the larger itself were brewed in France.
Small print in the ad reads: "Brewed in the UK".
Owners Heineken UK said Kronenbourg 1664 was "an inherently French beer" that had first been brewed in 1952 in Alsace by Brasseries Kronenbourg and was now brewed under licence in the UK in a process supervised and approved by Brasseries Kronenbourg.
However, the ASA disagreed and said: "Although we noted from the documentation supplied that the Strisselspalt hop used by Heineken was sourced from the Alsace region of France, we also noted that it did not constitute a significant majority of the total hops used in the recipe for the beer.
"We therefore concluded that (the television) ad was misleading."
Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf has been putting in an odd performance at the Berlin Film Festival - quoting Eric Cantona and walking out of a press conference before later wearing a paper bag on his head declaring: "I am not famous any more."
The star of Transformers and Wall Street II, who is promoting controversial director Lars von Trier's new film Nymphomaniac at the festival, left the press conference after 10 minutes of questions.
He walked out after repeating Manchester United legend Cantona's famously cryptic speech to reporters in 1995, in which he told them: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."
