David Ginola was born on January 25, 1967, in Gassin, France. He began his football career at the age of 14, playing for the local club, Toulon. His talent soon caught the attention of bigger clubs, and he signed with Racing Paris in 1985.

Ginola's success in France led to a move to England, where he signed with Newcastle United in 1995. He was an instant hit with the fans, who dubbed him "The Magic Man" for his mesmerizing performances on the pitch.
