It’s another Sunday and another statement from Charles N’Zogbia in the Sunday Sun, saying that he wants to leave Newcastle United.
Charles N’Zogbia – my dream team is Arsenal – next installment next week
This is getting to be a little tedious, and Newcastle need to decide if they want to sell him, and if they do serll him. Or alse tell Chgalres to stop blanting about alwwantintg to leave Newcastle, because this is getting to be just a little tedious.
And we probably expect Charles to come out tomorrow and say he was misquoted – we’ve read this story before – far too many times.
His latest quote in this soap opera is that his dream team is Arsenal — and Kinnear’s insistence that the Frenchman is happy on Tyneside becomes debatable at best.
N’Zogbia said (or is said to have said):
“I told Newcastle that in case of possible transfer, I will do anything to leave this winter. If the club receives a nice offer, they will try to transfer me.”
“I ask myself questions about my future. At Newcastle for three years we are playing in the bottom of the league.” “I want to win titles, and I have set myself high objectives, like being in the French team.”
“I am used to English football, so my priority is to stay here.” “Arsenal is the club that makes me dream the most in the Premier League.”
“France? I don’t know it very well! But I think about it. Lyon is a very, very good club. PSG is currently in a very good period.” “If I have to be transferred there, I would have no regret. It would be a good choice.”
Joe Kinnear must get a grip on this youngster because his quotes are starting to annoy Newcastle fans. The player is on contract at Newcastle, and he should be concentrating on playing well for the high wages we pay him, and not telling journalists about different teams he wants to join. Charles – please grow up.
We have to stick to that well worn strategy at Newcastle, that we only want players who want to play for Newcastle United, and if Charles wants to leave then get rid of him, but not in the January window. because we’ll need him through May.
In the summer if he hasn’t changed his tune by that time, then sell him – but for a good price – again at the club’s option.
