Winger wants more focus on attack

Aston Villa

Aston Villa midfielder Charles N'Zogbia believes his side can climb out of the bottom three by going out to attack the opposition.

The France international has seen his side continue to fall down the league table conceding 22 goals in the last seven games, but he insists that if they try to attack teams then they will get results.

The former Wigan man revealed that boss Paul Lambert came into the club with plans to play attacking football, but as the season has progressed they have retreated into their shells.

The Villans have struggled to find the back of the net so far this term, Christian Benteke is the top scorer with nine goals but with a lack of experience around the side they have only won four games.

“When I first met the manager, it made me happy that he wanted to go forward and play attacking football.” said N’Zogbia.

“He wants to let everybody play and show what they can do.

“For me, the best form of defence is to attack.”
