David Ginola In Line For New Role?

8 years ago

The French press are carrying reports that ex -Newcastle United winger, David Ginola could be in line for a new role.

However, the Frenchman could fave competition from a certain David Beckham.

PSG are looking for somebody to take on a similar, if no identical, role as exiting Sports Director, Leonardo.

As reports (thanks to our translator Pierre as always);

Ginola ou Beckham pour remplacer Leonardo ?

Ginola or Beckham to replace Leonardo?

Following Jorge Valdano’s name being put forward yesterday, the names of David Ginola and Beckham have emerged to replace Leonardo, who resigned on Wednesday from his position as sports director of PSG.

According to Le Parisien this Friday, the two former players from Paris Saint-Germain could apply for a role of adviser to the president, Nasser Al Khelaïfi, rather than the Sports director.

While Ginola has never hidden his desire to return to the capital club, Beckham could use the fact that he has many contacts in the world of football which could benefit the red and blue club.

Whether an appointment of Daveed Ginola would be a help or hindrance to Newcastle United is anybody’s guess.
