Now I have no doubt that some will claim he has been ‘misinterpreted’, but this is a serious interview.
“I was bought for 11.3 million euros (£10m) and I am not playing. I still think I make the right choice, but speaking about the game, it doesn’t fit.
“I’m not exactly jubilant. I like to go forward, but here they ask me to defend more than attack.”
He said: “If I get paid, I can do what I want with my money. He’s not my father to tell me what I should do. He doesn’t know where I come from.
“McLeish and I had problems of communication. We discussed it, and we put our bad feelings to one side.”
Now it was obvious at some of the games that there were problems. All interviews have to be cleared by the club so I can see action against this one he has given. It is a matter of management of course and N’Zogbia given his reputation was always a strange one for Mcleish to buy.
I am not an N’Zogbia fan, I never understood why would want an inconsistent player. Just because stats say he had a good season it hides the very poor games he did have for Wigan. The comments on the Yahoo piece say it all for me and at this time he should just shut up and ask for a move at the end of the season.
Just glad we are not in relegation trouble now !!
EDIt – The inevitable ‘I never said this’ quotes from N’Zogbia are out, no shock really, typical footballers when speaking out loud then slapped down.
