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.
PSG unfolded €30 million for Ezequiel Lavezzi back in 2012 but the Argentine forward is believed to be frustrated by his lack of games with the French side as he is playing a role of a substitute player instead of being a regular key player for the team.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cavani are seeing more playing time than Lavezzi and have already cemented their place into the starting lineup of Laurent Blanc and it does not seem that it’s going to change anytime soon.
David Ngog found the net for the first time this season yesterday and helped his team Bolton Wanderers secure an easy victory against AFC Bournemouth. Bolton won by 2-0.
This was only the second victory for Bolton in the ongoing Championship. They have played 14 matches so far out of which they have lost 5 and have shared points in 7 matches. They have got a total of 13 points at the moment.
France slipped out of their hands the chance on grabbing the World Cup back in 2006 when they played in the finals against Italy and an unfortunate turn of events kept them unable of obtaining ultimate glory when their captain Zinedine Zidane was handed a red card in the 110th minute.
The match continued playing on until Italy ultimately won in penalties. But the doubt forever remains in what would’ve happened if Zidane stayed in the match?
Bolton Wanderers forward David Ngog has opened the door for a return to France with Bordeaux after talking up a move from the English Championship side to the Ligue 1. The 24 year old player joined the Reebok Stadium outfit in the summer of 2011 from Liverpool in a £ 4 million deal but he has so far failed to live up to expectations at the club and has scored just 11 goals in 64 league appearances for the club.
The Premier League relegation battle looks set to dominate the headlines next season as a wealth of top-flight clubs risk dropping down to the Championship, with the bookies taking bets for many clubs to go down. Last term eight teams remained under threat with only a handful of games to go and the league will witness the same this season unless clubs spend big this summer.
The manager of Bolton Wanderers, Dougie Freedman, has expressed his disappointment over his team’s defeat in the previous match against Charlton Athletic, but, he has also said that his team still has the chance of making its way into the play offs.
Bolton Wanderers is currently at no. 9 in the Championship points table with 54 points in 39 matches. They have secured 14 wins in the ongoing Championship so far.
In the match against Charlton Athletic, the Trotters were off to a blistering start. They were leading by 2-0 in the 20th minute of the match. But, after that second goal, nothing went in their favour. Their lead got reduced to 1-2 in the 25th minute when Johnnie Jackson opened the scoring for Charlton.
Samuel Ricketts was shown the red card in the 58th minute of the match and Bolton was left with only 10 men. Just a couple of minutes later, Charlton equalized. It was Dorian Dervite who scored the leveller.
Charlton got penalty in the 63rd minute. That was a great chance for them to get ahead in the match. They didn’t let that opportunity go. Yann Kermorgant took the shot and he made no mistake.
With only 10 men, it was very difficult for the Trotters to comeback. They tried hard, but, couldn’t level the scores.
In the post match press conference, Freedman said, “We began well and kept them under pressure in the entire first half, but, after losing Samuel, things became tough for us.”
“I think we can still make it to the play offs. All we have to do is to win a few matches and we will be back on track.”
Bolton Wanderers will play its next match against Huddersfield Town. That match will be played at the Reebok Stadium on Tuesday.
The agent of David Ngog, Bruno Satin, has said that Ngog doesn’t want to leave his current club Bolton wanderers and all the reports about his transfer are false.
There have been a few reports that Ngog is not enjoying himself in the Bolton Wanderers camp and he wants to take a transfer. But, his agent has denied all those speculations.
When asked about the reports of Ngog’s transfer, Satin said, “There is nothing like that. David is not planning to leave Bolton. His tuning with the manager and president of the club is pretty good and he is pretty happy playing for Bolton.”
However, Satin admitted that a few clubs were interested in signing Ngog during the mid season transfer window. Satin said, “Yes, a few clubs wanted to buy him in January, but, David rejected their offers.”
The English club Fulham was also reported to be one of the clubs which were interested in signing Ngog.
Ngog had signed for Bolton Wanderers in August 2011. Bolton had bought him from Liverpool after paying a transfer fee of 4 million Pounds. The French striker has featured for Bolton in 54 matches so far and has scored 8 goals.
Ngog’s contract with Bolton is going to expire in 2014 and according to his agent; Ngog will not take a transfer before the completion of his contract.
Ngog’s agent admitted that this hasn’t been the greatest of seasons for his client, but, he said that Ngog is working hard to put up better performances in the remaining matches.
Satin said. “This season hasn’t been that good for David, but, he is a sort of guy who always works hard either he is playing well or not. Hopefully, in the rest of the matches, his performance would be better.”
The Bolton Wanderers striker David Ngog has said that he is still confident that the club can get promotion back into the top flight despite making a poor start to the season. As a result of the poor start made to the new season under Owen Coyle, Bolton were close to the relegation zone at the start of the season rather than near the top of the table. This led to the sacking of the manager midway through the campaign, while he has been replaced by Dougie Freedman. Under the new manager, results have been extremely good and Bolton are just seven points below the play-off position now.
Due to this, the Frenchman David Ngog has said that he still has the faith that Bolton will be able to qualify for the Premier league to the play-off position. The club desperately need to get back into the top flight as soon as possible due to the significant debts that threaten to put the club in grave danger. The club has already gone a major restructuring in terms of the players and wages. More are expected to come in the way they do not get promotion to the top flight, which will guarantee more than £ 60 million per season in extra income alone.
“We are ambitious and we want to be at the top of the league but it won’t be easy. There are a lot of games over the next two weeks. We have to work hard and prepare well to get as many points as we can. In this league it is really tight. There are a lot of teams in the same area, so of course, we still believe in it (promotion). It won’t be easy and we have to be prepared but we are confident we can do it,” said David Ngog.
The new Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has said that he is extremely confident that he can bring the best out of the former Liverpool striker David Ngog. The Frenchman was a £ 4 million signing by the former manager Owen Coyle, but he has been largely hit and miss during his spell at Bolton Wanderers.
The club are currently fighting against relegation from the Championship after a poor start to the new season. This led to the sacking of manager Owen Coyle, who has been replaced by the Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman.
After taking over at the club, he has said that one of his main priorities will be to get the best out of David Ngog. He has also said that players like Chris Eagles are also extremely important to the season. David Ngog was a substitute in the recent match against Cardiff city. Cardiff city were coming into the match as the league leaders, but were defeated by two goals by the substitute David Ngog. After the match, Freedman said that he was not surprised by the goals scored by the Frenchman, but is expecting these goals to come on a regular basis in the future. David Ngog is back in contention for a starting spot in the match against Blackpool.
“In my humble opinion, David Ngog could be the difference that takes this team to where we want to be or not. That’s how important he is. I can see the potential in him and I am actually very excited to work with David, now I know what he is about. When he come on against Cardiff he was fantastic. His movement and desire was there,” said Dougie Freedman after the Cardiff city match. The victory has helped Bolton Wanderers rise up to the 17 position in the table.
