'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Martinez - N'Zogbia Is Going Nowhere

Latics manager Roberto Martinez has reiterated that the club has absolutely no interest in selling Player of The Year Charles N`Zogbia, who, he says, is very happy at Wigan Athletic.

The comments were made in the wake of media speculation surrounding the player today and over the past few days, and Martinez is adamant that N`Zogbia is committed to Latics.

Martinez said: "My view is that we`ve always said that Charles N`Zogbia is not for sale and that`s not going to change.

"I`ve spoken with Charles and he is very happy at Wigan Athletic.

"That`s what matters and that`s the clear message to our fans, we`re not here to try and sell our best performers, we want to keep them, develop them and help them reach the next level, and Charles feels he can do that at Wigan Athletic.

"It`s for everyone to see the huge development of Charlie`s game over the last season. He`s enjoyed his football and his role at Wigan Athletic and we want that to continue for next season.

"Charlie has got the potential to play at the highest level in World football but he knows he can still continue to progress towards that goal at this club

"I`m just happy that Charles is enjoying his holidays and getting himself focused to coming back next season ready to carry on the good work he`s done over the last 12 months."

"We are not in a position where we have to sell and if and when we do it will be only in the club`s best interests and after we have identified two or three potential replacements for that position.

"We want to grow as a club over the next few seasons, we have a clear strategy for the way ahead and we are determined to keep progressing.

"The sort of speculation we have seen this week is in my view just malicious and designed to unsettle a player who is very happy here."

Sounds a little familiar. Remember Cattermole?

Whelan has made it very clear that he's for sale albeit at a stupid price to appease Wigan's fans. So when a offer comes in for a rival club for the player and the manager then goes mouthing of to the media would suggest poor communication?

Maybe its just gesturing in order to get the true valuation, we did it with Figgy both last summer and again in January, oh and he's still here

Every player is for sale at stupid prices and if it's an upward move. Thus far Birmingham and £8 is hardly that.
