'If It's Football, It's Vital'

N`Zogbia: I was misquoted

Following in the well publicised footsteps of Gallas, Ginola and co, our very own moaning Minnie, Charles the Zog, has claimed agent nuisance being to blame for quotes attributed to him in all the Sunday papers, asking for a move to Paris. In a large portion of humble pie eating, Chuck said:

'In an ideal world, I would want to stay with Newcastle United. This is the first time I have spoken about my future and those quotes attributed to me over the weekend came from my agent back in France.

Obviously, I am not happy that I have hardly figured in Joe Kinnear's starting line-up recently, but that is up to me to put right. This is all out of my hands, and if Newcastle want to sell me then there is nothing I can do about that. But don't forget I have been at Newcastle for over four years now and I consider this my home. And I now have a big French pal in Sebastien Bassong, who is doing great for us the moment.

I have happy memories of the Riverside Stadium as I feel the goal I managed there last season - with my right foot - was one of the best I have scored for the club. As far as last Saturday is concerned, I woke up at our team hotel in absolute agony with a back spasm.

It's something that often happens to footballers. I had to get the doctor to come and attend to me, and this is the only reason why I missed the pre-match walk before the Chelsea game. The doctor did wonders for me and I was able to be involved against Chelsea - something I did not think possible when I woke up.'
