N’Zogbia confident of success

Young and Downing have joined Manchester United and Liverpool

respectively ahead of the new season, with N’Zogbia signed by Alex

McLeish to add the width and penetration the duo provided the

Villans. The Frenchman scored nine goals for Wigan last season and

believes he will be an adequate replacement for the duo. “I think

Stewart Downing and Ashley Young are good quality players, but I

think I am the type of player they [Aston Villa] need now,”

N’Zogbia told Sky Sports News. “They lost two good players and now

they have to recover what they lost, so that is why I am here. “I

have been working hard for the last two seasons and I know I can

replace them. “If I am 100 per cent then, I can show people how

good I am and what I can do, and for me it’s a great opportunity to

get this chance.”
