Paul Lambert has said that Stephen Ireland and Charles N’Zogbia will have the freedom to express themselves and flourish under his management style.
Speaking to the E&S Lambert was very positive about getting both players back to their best after working with them in training.
‘Stephen is a real talent, there’s no doubt about that. It shows when he plays because there is a lot of creativity there, just like Charles. We will try to get the best out of them because they are very very clever footballers.’
Whilst Ireland did improve at the tail end of last season as shown by the fans who voted him Player of the Year and has shown good form in the friendlies so far, Charlie still has a way to go for most fans as it still hasn’t quick clicked for him yet, but that doesn’t concern Lambert as he’s been delighted with them both in pre season so far.
‘I didn’t know them as people or as footballers but I can’t ask for anything more from their attitude in pre season.’
Fingers crossed Lambert can get the best out of both of them, as we know how dangerous they can be, and they could both be huge players for us if they find their form properly this season.
We know there is more to come from both, especially N’Zogbia.
