N'Zogbia: ''I'll never play for Joe Kinnear again''

Newcastle's Charles N'Zogbia says that he will never play for Joe Kinnear again after the manager ''insulted'' him in a television interview.

The Frenchman has made no secret of his desire to leave the club, but released a statement after Kinnear struggled to say the player's name correctly when being quizzed about the departure of Shay Given.

Kinnear had been speaking after his team's disappointing 2-1 defeat to Manchester City, stammering and failing to enunciate N'Zogbia's surname correctly and he covered up his error by substituting it for the player's nickname: Charlie.

''I will never play for the club again, while Joe Kinnear remains Newcastle manager,'' raged the winger, who has been courting a move away for some time.

"First of all, I wish to apologise to the fans for wanting to leave the club," he told Sky Sports News.

"However, I have been insulted by Joe Kinnear. The club are aware that there are offers on the table for me and they should accept one of them."

Wigan and Aston Villa reportedly in the frame, while the player has said in the past he would favour a move to Arsenal or Lyon, despite signing a five-year contract in 2007.

The 23-year-old was also involved in a training ground bust-up with team-mate Andrew Carroll last week, and although the manager took no action over the ruckus, it would seem his latest outburst has sealed his fate.

Kinnear though, hit back in his own statement and revealed that Newcastle have not had a single offer for the player.

He said: "I couldn't believe it when I was told Charles had issued a statement claiming he was insulted, apparently for nothing more than me mis-pronouncing his name in a post-match interview at Manchester City.

"Okay, I got a little tongue-tied - but if I had a pound for every time I've mis-pronounced a player's name down the years, then I'd be a very wealthy man indeed.

"There have already been plenty of quotes attributed to Charles during January, saying he is interested in leaving for other clubs. But the truth is we haven't received a formal offer for him.

"Sadly, this just smacks of a desperate attempt to engineer a move away from Newcastle United - a club that gave Charles the chance to play in the Premier League and which has rewarded him handsomely during his time at St James' Park."

N'Zogbia joined Newcastle in September 2004 from French club Le Havre after a tug-of-war between the clubs for his services, which went all the way to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
