David N'Gog (born April 1, 1989 in Gennevilliers ) is a French football player who is currently under contract with A lyga FK Žalgiris .


Youth and PSG

The FC Les Lilas had kicked the first football club to N'Gog. In 1995 he moved to FC Franconville Plessis-Bouchard , where he spent six years of his youth until he was brought to the big PSG in 2001 . In 2005 he played for the B team for the first time, on November 18, 2006 he played his first game in Ligue 1 , when he was sent out for Amara Diané in the 46th minute in the 2-0 home defeat against Girondins Bordeaux has been. On March 15, 2007 he completed his UEFA Cup game when he came on in the 70th minute for Péguy Luyindula in the round of 16 against Benfica Lisbon . Benfica beat PSG 3-1. After a total of eighteen league games and a single goal, he left the club.

Liverpool FC

In July 2008 he moved to Liverpool for a fee of 1.5 million pounds . Rafael Benítez , then Liverpool coach, praised his scouts for discovering them, saying: Our scouts find players like N'Gog with a high quality that is inexpensive. In the next few weeks he played friendly matches against Villarreal , Glasgow Rangers and Vålerenga Oslo , in which he scored two goals. On August 31, he made his Premier League debut against Aston Villa , where he came on for Fernando Torres . His first competitive goal, however, came in the group stage of the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League in a 3-1 win over PSV Eindhoven . His debut in the starting XI came on February 7, 2009 against Portsmouth FC and just under a month later, on March 3, he scored his first Premier League goal against Sunderland AFC . His second followed on April 11 in a commanding 4-0 win over Blackburn Rovers .

The start of the 2009/10 season was very satisfactory for N'Gog. Already on matchday two he scored his first goal of the season against Stoke City . About a month later he scored the decisive 1-0 against Leeds United in the 3rd round of the League Cup . On October 25, in the top game against Manchester United , he scored in the 96th minute for a relieving 2-0 after being substituted on for the 1-0 shooter Fernando Torres fifteen minutes before . N'Gog said in an interview afterwards that it was a fantastic moment for him and his team. For him it was even the best moment of his career. On November 9, he scored 1-0 against Birmingham City in the 13th minute , but before the break, Birmingham turned the game to 1: 2. In the 71st minute he was allegedly put in the penalty area by Lee Carsley and the referee ruled on a penalty. Steven Gerrard converted this to 2-2. Two weeks later, with his 1-0 winner at Debreceni Vasutas SC , he secured three important points for Liverpool FC in the fight for a place in the round of 16, which, however, could not be reached in third place. His coach put his trust in him after that game and put him back in the starting line-up for a long time against Everton . On February 18, 2010, his 1-0 winner against Unirea Urziceni laid the foundation for the next round of the UEFA Europa League . In the semifinals they were eliminated against eventual winners Atlético Madrid .

For the 2010/11 season coach Roy Hodgson came to Anfield . This N'Gog showed his scoring danger by scoring both goals in the third qualifying round of the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League in a 2-0 away win at Macedonian club Rabotnički Skopje . In the second leg he initiated the 2-0 home win with a header and even got a penalty, which Steven Gerrard later converted to 2-0. At the season opener against Arsenal , he achieved the interim 1-0 lead. The game ended in a 1-1 draw. After long games against West Bromwich Albion and Birmingham City , he showed character and then scored twice in the 4-1 win over Steaua Bucharest . In the League Cup he shot his team in the 116th minute against Northampton Town on penalties, but missed there and Northampton won 4-2. On December 6, he scored his second goal of the season with a header in a 3-0 win over Aston Villa .
