Wigan wideman Charles N’Zogbia has stated that he is 100% committed to helping Wigan avoid the drop to The Championship, despite doubts over the French stars future at the club. N’Zogbia was the subject of transfer talk in the January transfer window, and opted to stay and fight at the DW Stadium amid interest from Birmingham and ex-employers Newcastle.
The Frenchman at times cuts something of a forlorn figure and his temperament and work ethic has been called into question previously, but he has told L’Equipe that he is not interested in speculation and is focused on helping Wigan move out of the dropzone.
“I don’t want to hear anymore about the January transfer market”, N’Zogbia claimed this week. “I told people who called me that I would not move, I just want to do everything to help Wigan survive”.
N’Zogbia recently made his debut for the French International team, and is keen to improve both personal and team performances to increase his chances of impressing Les Blues head coach Laurent Blanc and being selected for remaining UEFA Euro 2012 qualifiers. If Wigan are to avoid the drop the creativity and versatility of N’Zogbia will be essential; they face a tough task this weekend however as they go up against rejuvenated Liverpool at Anfield.
