He told the Shields Gazette: "Charles N'Zogbia scored an absolutely wonderful goal and it deserved to help win any game of football.
"It was his wrong foot, and it was a terrific goal for the boy. He's got real quality.
"He has a body language that doesn't appear too happy on a day-to-day basis, but he gets on with Geremi really well now and that's helped him. He's a father figure to him.
"There'll be no chance of him leaving our football club, that's for sure."
