Ginola For Tottenham?

Last updated : 22 October 2008 By Footy Mad - Editor
The French international spent two seasons at Newcastle (1995/97) making 75 appearances for the Magpies before signing for Spurs.

Ginola was inspirational in his early career at SJP. A world class player who was subject to abuse from French fans for letting slip the pass that cost his country a place in the World Cup finals, when Bulgaria equalised in injury time.

Ginola: "I'm frustrated to see the clubs I like struggling so much. Spurs are really in trouble and it's disappointing.

"The first to be blamed will be the manager, of course, but when he first arrived he was the best in the world. Now he seems to be called the worst. In a few months he has not become the worst manager in the world.

"We all want to see changes but I don't know if changing the manager would be a solution.

"All the politics of the club must change. They need better management - not just on the pitch, but in the offices. Spurs, somewhere, are not making the right decisions.

"I would love to help them. I would love to be back at White Hart Lane, to bring back a bit of spirit, a bit of knowledge about the game. A team is a family - if you forget that you will not be able to have success.

"I worked at Tottenham as a player and my relationship with the fans and the people at the club was great. I know if I go back I could bring something different - a new vision about how to react to each other, to make sure every player enjoys training and enjoys going out to play on a Saturday.

"The process is hard but it is something I always did when I played at Spurs. I would love to do that again."
