N`Zog - a professional

N`Zog - a professional

Having been subject to intense speculation throughout last season, with alleged French newspaper interviews and the usual links to Tottingham, Charles N`Zogbia was a man most fans thought would be on his way out of the club come the summer. Here we are in late August and the player remains in black and white. KK has noticed a sea-change in the player`s attitude, something that has caused him to speak about the lad:

'When I first came in, he came to see me, and I think he wanted to leave this club. I don't see that now. I see a guy who has worked really hard, and has been right up the front with the running, and who is saying: 'I want to be part of this'.

I'm trying to keep Charlie in the side somewhere, as I've got a lot of players who play in the same position. It's tough on Jose, because he's trained very hard, but I just felt Charlie's experience of the Premiership and his ability to get forward might help us at Old Trafford. I thought he did very well.

I still think he's learning the left-back position a bit, but for me the pluses far outweigh the minuses, and that's why I played him. He plays left-back for the French Under-21s, so I'm not asking him to play a position he doesn't know. He's never complained. He's been absolutely fantastic.'
