Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish wants to help winger Charles N'Zogbia rediscover the form that made him the club's major summer signing.

N'Zogbia was fined and left out of the squad for Saturday's 1-0 home reverse against Manchester United after failing to turn up at Villa for medical treatment. He has struggled to make an impact since his £9.5million summer switch from Wigan and been left out of the starting line-up in recent weeks.

"I've tried to encourage Charles at every turn. I'm not a tyrant. It is not me against Charles or any of my players," said McLeish.
