One real surprise Newcastle fans had yesterday, was that young Frenchman Charles N’Zogbia may not be as settled as we thought at Newcastle United.
Charles N’Zogbia – Keegan will bring out attacking flair
The player’s agent Willie McKay went public yesterday and said that Newcastle were in negotiations with Spurs for the Frenchman. But Tottenham, to their credit, immediately denied they were in for the former Le Havre youngster.
However, there’s rarely smoke without some fire and we think there are a number of London clubs just eying the impressive young Frenchman. We think Tottenham may have been feeling out Charles, maybe for the summer transfer window.
But Charles N’Zogbia, along with Milner, Taylor, Enrique and the other youngsters we have brought in, is where the future lies for Newcastle.
If we cannot keep these young stars we’ll be in trouble. But at least the club now knows Charles may still be unsettled, and we have nobody better at the helm than Kevin Keegan to deal with this situation.
We’ll have to rely on Kevin’s legendary man management skills, not only to have Charles settle down at the club, but also to bring out the natural attacking flair Charles has, when he plays for the Magpies.
A player like Charles should have a real ball playing under Kevin Keegan.
We like Charles, but he’s also a very quiet boy, and it’s sometimes hard for people to know exactly what he’s thinking. It’s important we don’t lose him in the summer, that’s for sure.
