Nasri drops international retirement hint

Manchester City star Samir Nasri has dropped a big hint he is ready to quit international football after claiming playing for his country no longer makes him happy, according to Sky Sports.

Nasri was dealt a huge snub by France boss Didier Deschamps after he was not selected for the French World Cup squad that made it to the quarter finals in Brazil this summer.


This follows his exclusion from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa too and the player now appears to be considering calling it quits for his nation’s side.


He has declared that he will make an announcement on his future after stating that while he is not affected, the press coverage about his international exploits affects his family’s happiness.


Nasri said: “I made the decision a while ago but I will announce it when the time is right.


“It's not something you can just announce on Twitter. I have to sit down and do a full interview and just say it.


“Even before the summer, during Euro 2012 I had a lot going on.


“Personally, it doesn't affect me but it affects my family. They live in France, they read the press stuff.


“I live in England so I'm fine with everything they say. But for my parents it's really hard. I want to make them happy and the national team doesn't make me happy.”


The 27-year-old has been in and around the France set up for seven years but has never won a trophy with his country.


He has claimed 41 caps for Les Bleu and scored five times – but the latest controversial snub seems to be the final straw for the play-maker.
