The manager of Bolton Wanderers, Dougie Freedman says that David Ngog still has an important role to play for his club. The French striker was heavily linked with a switch to the Turkish side Bursaspor but according to Freedman, there have not been any kind of offers or bids for him.
“There’s always going to be speculation when players are out of the team,” said Freedman. “We’ve had no official offers, but we have had two enquiries. David is a good player and he has a part to play. Right now, he has lost his form and is out of the team. He has to accept that and do something about it’’.
“Naturally, some players move on and some players dig deep. David will decide what he wants to do. We feel David has got to make that decision. Does he want to fight for his place or does he want to move on?”
David Ngog made his switch from Liverpool to Bolton Wanderers back in August of 2011 where the Championship club had to offload €4 million for the Frenchman but his time at the new club is not going as he would have desired as he has made 87 appearances for Bolton and only scored 13 goals.
“We know exactly what we would like to achieve in January in terms of bringing people in, but you’ve got to be very realistic. You’ve got to balance the books and make sure the club’s healthy going forward’’.
“There are one or two players that we have to move on to play some football, may that be selling them or loaning them, but as we speak there’s not been any concrete offers.”
In this season Ngog has made 17 appearances and scored on 3 occasions. Freedman made a hint stating that there are 2 or 3 players which would be better to sell or loaning them out of the club and if the situation of Ngog does not change anytime soon, he might be one of those candidates.
