Even though Charles N’Zogbia seems to give daily quotes that he wants out of Newcastle in January, Joe Kinnear seems confident the winger will be focused ahead of tonight’s FA Cup clash with Hull City.
Charles N’Zogbia – will still give his best tonight – wow – big deal!
N’Zogbia agent, Frank Peslerbe, has been causing all the trouble, and he confirmed French champions Lyon were ready to make their move, and if we can sufficient players ion during January, and replace Charles, then it may still be possible to get this whiner out of the club this month.
Joe Kinnear has rightly been irritated by Peslerbe’s interference during January, with his player, after all, contracted to0 the club until 2012.
Kinnear told the Chronicle today:
“There is not a shadow of doubt he will give it his all.” “Charles is a talented player and, as long as we can harness him and get him to do the job in the right areas, he has fantastic ability.”
“I have made it clear this week his future remains with Newcastle United.” “In the position we are in at the moment, with 11 key players injured, he has a major role to play.”
“Irrespective of what bids come in, I am not in a position to let anybody go.”
“Had the other 11 players been available, I would have probably said I would listen to offers and work around that, but at the moment we are being crucified with injuries.”
“As long as the window is open, I will not be selling anybody – unless I consider them to be fringe players.”
Let’s just say we are hardly impressed that Charles will give his all if he plays tonight for Newcastle. That’s what we’d expect him to do since he’s getting handsomely paid by the club, and after all it’s Newcastle who have brought this lad along to where he is right now, and he’s hardly conducting himself with any class in the press.
Kinnear is confident of signing Danish international winger Peter Lovenkrands until the end of the season.
“I took the opportunity because he is a class player.”
“His contract has finished at Schalke.”
“e will train with us until Friday, and then I will make a decision.”
Whoops, so that means he still hasn’t made a final decision on Peter?
For no money we’re sure Lovenkrands will be worth it at Newcastle, but it will depend on how consistent he is, and whether he can avoid injuries, since we’ve heard form some Rangers’ fans that he tends to pick up quite a few injuries.
Sounds like deja vu – all over again.
