Admiring Westwood: I wish I had N'Zogbia's forward flair


Ashley Westwood is a big fan of Charles N'Zogbia's forward flair.

Westwood is happy with his reliable role in the team, vitally breaking up play and setting the wheels in motion for attacking moves.

But he admits he looks on longingly in training as wing wonder N'Zogbia glides past defenders with ease.

Westwood believes N'Zogbia is a "big talent" who will play a huge role as the team looks to surge up the top-flight table in the closing months of the season.

He said: "I have been really impressed with Charles.

"You just give him the ball and even if he's got four men around him, you know he's going to do something. He has a special talent.

"He glides across the turf and bursts past people as if they're not there. It's something I wish I could do! He does it with ease.

"It's great to have him. He's been superb these past few weeks and long may that form continue.

"It's easy for me playing with him. You see Charles in the hole in front of you and he demands the ball, he wants the ball.

"Even when he has men around him, you give it to him and you know he will keep it.

"His impact has been superb. He been a big player for us and he will be a big player for us between now and the end of the season."
