Joe Kinear has today said that Charles N’Zogbia is a mixed up kid, but can leave Newcastle United.
Joe Kinnear says mixed up kid, N’Zogbia, can leave the club
The Newcastle manager says that N’Zogbia was mixed up but revealed the winger is now free to leave if Newcastle receive a suitable bid for the player.
It must be a real irritant to Kinnear, who is trying his best with all the injuries, to try to strengthen his squad in the last few days of the market – and he has this little boy keep complaining about wanting to leave, and talking to any papers that will listen to his bleating.
We sympathize with Joe, and wouldn’t show the same patience as the Irishman.
Kinnear said today:
“He’s a mixed up kid.” “If I have a go at anyone it’s his agent, he’s filled his head with c***.”
“He’s got ability but every day he has been linked with a new team.” “There is no truth in the bids.”
“If there was to be a bid we’d listen.” “He’s injured at the minute.”
“But if we get a good deal or even an exchange we’ll listen.”
We should get at least £6M for Charles, and hopefully maybe even do a part exchange for him, as Joe suggests, so we get a player in to replace him.
Whether Wigan Athletic and Steve Bruce would be interested in paying say £5M to Newcastle for N’Zogbia and giving us Ryan Taylor too, is debatable.
But Steve does have money to spend from the sale of Emile Heskey to Aston Villa and Wilson Palacios to Spurs.
