Nasri takes another dig at Arsenal

Bookmark and Share

Sunday 10 June 2012

Former Arsenal playmaker Samir Nasri has again blasted his former club, declaring he is glad that he longer needs to dream about winning titles, The Daily Mail reports.

Nasri infuriated Gunners fans by demanding a move to Manchester City last summer. On the eve of France’s opening Euro 2012 game with England, Nasri has openly criticised Arsenal over their title ambitions. The 24 year old has also declared that he did not make the move to the Etihad Stadium for a bigger wage; only his sporting ambitions forced a move.

“I’m glad I left, because City are far more competitive and are winning titles, not dreaming about it. I have said 300 times I did not leave Arsenal for the money, only for sporting aspirations and if people don’t believe me that’s their problem”, Nasri said.

There are rumours circulating the French press that Arsenal are interested in buying back Nasri, after City boss Roberto Mancini has become discontented with Nasri’s performances. A large section of the Emirates Stadium would not want to see their former player return after his comments about the club, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is still a big fan of his compatriot.

You were not leaving for trophies, because we were closer than city many times. You were leaving for money! So you lying about it is YOUR problem! We will be back, and you will never get a second chance when that time comes!
