David Ginola – ‘When Newcastle People Give Their Friendship It is Forever’

7 years ago

Those first four or five months of David Ginola in a Newcastle shirt were arguably the greatest by a United player in many a year.

The ball appeared to be stuck to his foot as David Ginola mesmerised both Newcastle fans and the opposition players with his unbelievable dribbling skills.

It wasn’t that he was rubbish after that initial half season but it was only on occasion that he reached those heights again after he got kicked off the pitch at Highbury before eventually retaliating and was instantly dismissed.

Daveed has now been interviewed by BT Sport about his time at Newcastle and while his departure from Dalglish’s NUFC wasn’t the smoothest, it is clear it was also a special time for Ginola as well on Tyneside;

“I moved from romantic Paris to Newcastle, where the people work hard and play hard.

“We went for a day out in Whitley Bay but I couldn’t put one foot in the water, it was so cold.

“We spent two years and it was fantastic, playing great football and scoring goals for fun.

“The people were so pleased and so happy to have a good team at Newcastle – they were so passionate.

“When people in Newcastle give you their friendship it is forever.”
