The former Magpies played for two years at the club, but he fell in love with the team and wishes he could one day manager it.

Former French footballer David Ginola played for Newcastle United from 1995 to 1997.

And now he wishes he could manage the team he loves.

“I am currently going for my coaching badges,” he told The Express.

“I would love [to manage Newcastle].”

The ex-midfielder added: “That would be the challenge of my life… it would be the perfect situation. The perfect scenario.”

“Coming to manage Newcastle was never going to be easy,” said current Magpies manager Steve Bruce.

“When I was at Sheff Wed I’d have the lad from the Sheffield Star and BBC Sheffield and that’s it. We’d be done in seven minutes.”

“The way it is here is something I understand (gesturing to the number of journalists packed into the room),” he added.

“There is a big interest. That’s why it is quite unique.”
