David Ginola has revealed that he would ‘love’ to manage Newcastle United, saying it would be the ‘perfect’ to take over at St James’ Park one day.
The Frenchman has done a lot of TV work since retirement, but has confirmed this week that he’s now doing his coaching badges – and it seems he’s already eyeing the Newcastle United job at some stage in the future.
Here’s what the 52-year-old told Back of the Net when asked about his desire to succeed in football management:
“I am currently going for my coaching badges. I would love to manage Newcastle.
“That would be the challenge of my life… it would be the perfect situation. The perfect scenario.”
If his playing style is anything to go by, you’d expect Ginola to play some ‘sexy football’ if and when he takes the leap into management, although I’m not sure the Newcastle job is well suited to someone who’s had serious heart problems in recent years!
Good luck to him – whether he ends up managing Newcastle United one day or not.
