Ginola was a superstar with Spurs

The football years

Ginola is now a lot more, but you have to remember that it all started on the football field.

After starting his career with Toulon, RC Paris and Brest, the winger announced himself to Paris Saint-Germain where he became an extremely popular figure while admitting that he was in fact a fan of Marseille.

In 1995, his adventure in England began when he moved to Newcastle United, where he perfectly embodied the ‘animators’ label which was placed on Kevin Keegan’s side as they contested for the Premier League title.

A transfer target for Bobby Robson at Barcelona, ​​Ginola moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 1997 where he played a key role in their League Cup victory in 1999 before being inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame in 2008.

He went on to have less successful spells with Everton and Aston Villa, where he famously responded to John Gregory’s jibe about being overweight by celebrating a goal and removing his shirt to show off his toned physique.

After his retirement, Ginola established himself as one of the top experts with several broadcasters, including talkSPORT, where he produced some memorable moments.

He even flirted with the idea of ​​running for the FIFA presidency but withdrew his candidacy after failing to gain support from at least five national football associations.

He also appeared in advertising campaigns for Braun razors, Carte Noire coffee, Kingston Technologies USB sticks, but was best known for his work with L’Oréal and Renault.

In 2008, he won a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge for a rosé wine produced in his vineyard in Provence.

His love for Only Fools And Horses

In one of his most memorable moments on talkSPORT, Ginola recounted how he used the hit TV show Only Fools And Horses to learn English after joining Newcastle United in 1995.

He explains: “When you are French and you arrive in the North East and you have a match in London with five hours by bus.

“On screen you have Only Fools And Horses which you are watching for the first time in your life, it’s a bit of a shock in the first place!

“After a while you get used to it and start to like it.

“‘Trig, why are you calling me Dave? My name is not Dave, my name is Rodney. “Don’t be a plonker all your life, Rodney!” “

He even gave a pretty memorable take on the Only Fools And Horses theme song which you can listen to below.
