Newcastle United 1996 - No.14 Ginola.


David Ginola played for ten seasons in his native France before making the move from PSG to Newcastle United in July 1995 for £2.5 million, becoming a flamboyant part of the memorable "Entertainers" Newcastle side of this era.
Having been blamed unceremoniously for the failure of the French national team to make it to the 1994 World cup finals Ginola took his frustrations out on Premier League defences and helped Kevin Keegans United to 2nd in the table, although they should have beaten Manchester Utd to the title.

A massive favourite with the fans, some of whom had nicknamed him "David Copperfield" because of his ability to conjure up magic, Ginola was the creative spark within a well balanced team that just tried to outscore their opponents.
When Keegan departed in January 1997, the writing was on the wall for Ginola and he was soon heading to Spurs.
In 1999, Dutch legend Johan Cruyff remarked that it was his belief that Ginola was currently the best player in the world.
