The hiring of the football star is due to the fact that PokerStars Sports is attracting a larger number of bettors to its platform. This way, the company has not missed the opportunity to sign with the star that will be the face of "La Grosse Côte". With great odds on highlighted games, PokerStars offered this action on the match with the Frech team, Rennes, for the UEFA Champions League.
Ginola revealed the following to the PokerStars blog: "Becoming a PokerStars ambassador is a huge honour. I am very happy to take on this exhilarating role and to be able to share an exciting common adventure with the PokerStars community. It’s going to be great to announce La Grosse Cote. Boosting match odds is a great way to ignite the game of sports betting.".
David Ginola has made a name for himself by playing for one of the biggest clubs in European football. From 1992 to 1995, Ginola was part of the French team Paris Saint-Germain's, playing in 158 matches. In addition, the former player had as his colleagues the Brazilians: Raí, Valdo and Ricardo Gomes. After this period, Ginola migrated to the English football scene, being part of Tottenham's line-up, in London, where he played in 127 games. It is worth mentioning that the star played for the French National Team itself for 17 games.
Despite all his achievements and having consecrated his name in football, David Ginola gained a notorious reputation in a 1994 World Cup match. In this game, France were playing for a place in the World Cup qualifiers with Bulgaria. The game was 1-1, when Ginola entered the field and ended up losing the ball on the attacking field. This was enough for Bulgaria to take advantage of the opportunity and win the match. This episode resulted in the elimination of France and several attacks on the player at the time. The coach of the French national team, Gérard Houllier, criticized the player's loss of the ball.
