The news that Faye and Nâ€™Zogbia had an altercation last weekend has been denied by Charles Nâ€™Zogbia.
Charles N’Zogbia – happy at Newcastle United
We didnâ€™t write anything about the report because we thought it was a bit sensational and hoped it wasnâ€™t true.
Quite honestly, weâ€™re a little tired of the poor reporting on Newcastle, and some of it seems downright biased against the club.
Our aims on this site are to build our club up, and not rip it down, but we will also report most of the news each day.
Charles Nâ€™Zogbia, who we said yesterday, weâ€™d love to see stay at the club, has come out today and said he is happy at the club.
He played really well against Everton and looked what he is â€“ an excellent young player destined for greater things ahead of him.
The 21-year-old midfielder does not give many interviews, but he spoke to the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œI am happy at Newcastle United and, to tell the truth, I have always been.â€
â€œAt the moment, all I am concentrating on in playing for France Under-21s in Sweden at the end of this month”
“Like the rest of the Newcastle squad, I will be looking at what players we are going to sign.â€
Charles was willing to talk about his reported bust-up with Faye, saying:
“I have been at Newcastle since I was 17 and I have never been involved in a fight with anyone.â€
“And why would I pick a fight with Abdoulaye Faye? Not only is he a friend of mine but he is also a little bit bigger than me.”
For the record Faye is a massive 6â€™2â€ and Charles is 5â€™7â€ and we always thought Charles was more intelligent than to pick a fight with the mountain man â€“ looks like we were right. 😀
While Charles has not said he will definitely stay at the club, we certainly hope he will â€“ heâ€™s a great young player and will get even better under King Kev.
And if he does stay the fans will again take him under their wing, and remember he’s still only 21 years old.
He’s still maturing as a player and a person, and we’ve all made some silly mistakes of one kind of another before that age.
