We still donâ€™t know if Charles Nâ€™Zogbia will leave the club in the summer, and it may well be that he will get a start for Newcastle tomorrow at Everton.
Charles N’Zogbia – may start tomorrow
Kevin talked today to the Newcastle Journal, and was quite upbeat about Charlesâ€™ attitude in training over the last few weeks.
â€œI think that Charles has shown the desired reaction following our chat a few weeks ago, even though he had to wait to come inâ€
Charles has had some attitude problems in the past, and Keegan was unwilling to even give Nâ€™Zogbia even a substitute place when he failed to show the necessary commitment to the club and his team-mates. Hopefully N’Zogbia will have learned something from that.
â€œTo be fair to Charles Nâ€™Zogbia, he has trained fantastically well and he has had to wait for his opportunity to get back into the team because thereâ€™s no way I was going to put players in when the players who were in possession were doing so well.â€
â€œItâ€™s a different thing now with Everton because thereâ€™s no Mark Viduka or Joey Barton because of his bail conditions so there are opportunities and I will take one or two young players with us.â€
We think Charles may even get a start tomorrow with Viduka out injured for up to 6 months, and Joey Barton is not allowed to play in Liverpool, the city of his last altercation in December, because of his bail conditions.
Maybe Charles will be given a start in the midfield three for Barton. Whatever Kevin does decide should give us some indication of what will happen to Charles in the summer.
But we think if he has any doubts about staying at Newcastle he should move to London, and we still think that’s where he will end up for next season.
What do you think?
