Having heard the positive spin on the N’Zogbia story, here are the alleged negative quotes attributed to the player by L’Equipe, one of France’s premier sporting papers. In an exact conflict with the Chronicle’s published interview with N’Zogbia they said:

‘After four years at Newcastle, I want to reach a higher level of ambition. I don’t think that is possible here. I have given my all to the club, and I will go on to do so as long as I play. But I would like to reach a new level by finding a new challenge at a new side.’

Again, no clubs are cited – though there has been mooted German, French and English interest of late.
