David Ginola intends to sue his former France coach, Gérard Houllier. The veteran manager allegedly criticises Ginola in a new book, Coaches' Secrets.
"David is absolutely incensed," said a spokesman for Ginola. "Houllier should stop talking like this. Stop singling David out."
Houllier has attributed France's failure to reach the 1994 World Cup to Ginola, who conceded possession before Bulgaria's winner in the decisive qualifier, in the past.
