Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has told Charles N'Zogbia actions speak louder than words after the winger claimed he was not enjoying his football.

N'Zogbia has had a mixed first season at Villa Park since his £9million summer move from Wigan but has been urged by McLeish to overcome his frustrations through hard work and performing consistently.

N'Zogbia let his emotions spill over after Sunday's 2-1 defeat at his former club Newcastle by writing on Twitter that he was not enjoying his football "for the first time in my career". McLeish said: "I've said it before, that Twitter and the social networks is not a world familiar to me."
