David Ginola ‘will make a full recovery’ after skiing smash

The former Tottenham and France star David Ginola is recovering in France after a skiing accident on Tuesday left him with five broken ribs and a broken collarbone.

Ginola, 45, who was the Footballer of the Year in England in 1999, has already been discharged from hospital, his representative Chantal Stanley has told Sportingintelligence this evening.

‘David will be fine,’ Stanley said. ‘He’s healthy and fit and we expect him to make a full recovery. He’s in Megeve in the French Alps and he’s already out of hospital.

‘There are strange rumours about a serious throat problem but that’s not true.

‘The worst thing about broken bones is that there is nothing to accelerate the healing, so he just has to wait.

‘He is in some pain after a nasty fall, but he will be okay.’
