David Ginola was best player I ever played with – Vega

Published Add your comment

In an interview with GiveMeSport, former Tottenham centre-back Ramon Vega was asked who the greatest player he's shared the hallowed turf at White Hart Lane was. His answer? David Ginola, naturally.                

"A difficult one. We had really good players in those days," he said.

"David Ginola was without a doubt the most skilful [player] we had in the team."

Ramon spent three and a half seasons at Tottenham, a period that coincided with Ginola's three-year stint at the north London club.

Both players played a part in Tottenham's 1-0 victory over Leicester City in the 1999 League Cup final – a game that was decided courtesy of a last-minute goal from Allan Nielsen. 

In a squad that boasted the likes of Sol Campbell, Les Ferdinand, and – for a brief second (loan) spell at the club – Jürgen Klinsmann, the urbane Frenchman stood head and shoulders above the rest, with his balletic footwork and marauding runs.

Nowadays, Vega – who has a degree from the Zurich Business School – can be found managing his numerous businesses, including a real estate company that specialises in boutique hotels.
