David Ginola

Go Back


David was one of France’s most talented footballers but it was in the English Premiership where he made his biggest impact. He was renowned for his “magical” touch on the ball and his ability to get past players from any type of position and then manage to score a goal. In 1999, Dutch legend Johan Cruijff remarked that it was his belief that Ginola was currently the best player in the world.

David Karl Ginola was born 25 January 1967 in Gassin, Var. He began his football career in his native France before moving to England in 1995 when he signed for Newcastle United and stayed in the country until retiring seven years later, having subsequently turned out for Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Everton. Since his retirement from the game in 2002 he has become involved in several new pursuits, including acting.

David has acted in two films since his retirement from football. He played the title role in the short comedy Mr Firecul and Corporal Dieter Max in the 2005 war film The Last Drop.

David’s reputation was enhanced during his time in England when he starred in a commercial for L’Oréal hair products. In 1996, he featured in the ITV commercial for the Renault Laguna motor car. David has also had acting roles in two series on ITV and Channel 4.

As he has shown a number of times in the past, David Ginola has the charm and hunky good looks to bring success to any endorsement campaign.
