Aston Villa star reaps the reward of hard work
The Frenchman has experienced troubles trying to impress at Villa Park, since his arrival from Wigan back in summer 2011 after a £9.5 million move.
However, the 26 year-old seems to have found the rhythm under Paul Lambert’s management and tells The Sun that thanks to hard work in training his performances in the last few games have finally made an impact.
“You can have a gift but if you don’t work on it you can do nothing with it. If I’ve improved it’s because of the way I am training,
“Every day I’m here I’m working hard because if I want to stay in the team that’s what I have to do. I’m even doing a bit of extra work after training and it is helping me”, he recognised.
Aston Villa host the current league champions Manchester City in tonight’s Monday night football, with Lambert’s squad in need of points to jump out of the relegation positions.
N’Zogbia is aware the poor level the team have shown during the season, but believes every project need time to achieve the best results.
“It’s hard for any new team to get it right from the start. Even Barcelona weren’t put together in a season”.
