In the closing stages of a World Cup qualifier in November 1993, France were drawing with Bulgaria in Paris, which suited the hosts just fine. Their opponents on the other hand required victory and rather than run time down in the corner, Ginola attempted to cross the ball to Eric Cantona.
Unfortunately it was over-hit and Bulgaria broke away to score. That made it 2-1 and it was au revoir for Ginola and co.
And it was all the flamboyant winger's fault, according to his manager Gerard Houllier, who said the player had "committed a crime against the team."
Unsurprisingly, Ginola hasn't forgiven his compatriot and in 2014 revealed he neither has nor wants a relationship with his former manager.
"I was always told as a child that you win and lose as a team," he told Four Four Two.
"After that game I was made to feel as if I was playing an individual sport, and actually the players didn't say anything - they decided to hide behind the fact I was being blamed."
