'Insomnia' Has Never Fulfilled His Potential

N’Zogbia was signed by Bobby Robson from Le Havre and eventually sold to Wigan Athletic with Ryan Taylor coming in the other direction.

He was always a player who had amazing potential but never blossomed into a class Premier League player.

Were Newcastle right to let him go? Has Ryan Taylor been a better player for the Toon?

Charles N'Zogbia: “Newcastle are a club I’ll always respect because they were the first club to put me in at professional level. I was 18 when I first signed for them and I had four and a half fabulous years at Newcastle.

“It is still always good to play against a team that you were with before and have respect for.

"I'm back in the Villa side after recovering from an Achilles injury last summer.

“I felt it snap and unfortunately it was what it was but I had a good operation on it and feel stronger now.”
