After hot-headed moments in the past, N'Zogbia, 25, illustrated his growing maturity when asked about losing his international place with France.
He said: "I haven't been in for two or three months. It is up to me with my performances to make them pick me again.
"All the time I want to think about playing well for my club and the rest will come after.
"I have just got to be happy and every single game be proud. I can see time is going fast and want to win as many games as possible."
