"Football will be stronger" Ex-Spurs ace David Ginola speaks frankly about Paris attacks

David Ginola has well and truly hit the nail on the head here!

While France were claiming an impressive victory over the World Champions Germany in their national stadium, the Stade de France, the rest of Paris was in chaos.

With several attacks happening across the city, including two reportedly taking place at the Stade de France, the Guardian now tragically report that 127 people have sadly lost their lives at the hands of eight gunmen.

In fact, during the France and Germany clash, you could hear a loud explosion which seemed to stun the players very briefly. 

With everyone still shocked and saddened by the events of Friday evening, we can turn to former Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, David Ginola, for reflection from a sporting perspective.

With the Frenchman appearing on BT Sport's Fletch and Sav, he perfectly summed up the footballing world's view on such attacks: "We need to carry on because football will be stronger than that. It is sad because they targeted a place like the Stade de France, a place where people are going to have fun and watch a football game, this is why I am sad this morning." 

In fact, Ginola had questioned if he should even appear on the show after the attacks, saying: "After last night I wasn't sure anymore, because football is about freedom, football is about having fun. Speaking about football when you are no in the mood to express the things with a smile on your face is not the same." 

Well played David, well played.
