McLeish demands more from N'Zogbia

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has challenged winger Charles N'Zogbia to start producing the form he showed for former club Wigan on a consistent basis ahead of Saturday's clash at the DW Stadium.

McLeish splashed out £9 million on N'Zogbia last summer and has seen only flashes of the inspirational play which helped to keep the Latics in the Barclays Premier League. But the Villa manager insists N'Zogbia is not unique in taking time to settle at a new club.

He said: "I've been up there many times playing Wigan in the past with my team before and Charles was one of the differences. At the end of last season for Wigan, I thought he was the guy that made the difference. If he can bring that form to us on a really consistent level, then Charles is going to make a name (for himself) at Aston Villa."
