Nasri Mocks Arsenal

Manchester City midfielder, Samir Nasri, says he doesn’t care what Arsenal fans think of him, after he left the Gunners in 2011.

Nasri, who also announced his retirement from France, gave Arsenal supporters a piece of his mind after they are continuously whistling the City star when he faces his former club.

"The abuse doesn't affect me on the pitch, I just think it's stupid," Nasri said.

"I'm not an Arsenal fan, I am not from London. If we want to be honest, we are players who look at what is in the best interests for us and our career.

"When Manchester City came, it was the best choice for me to come here. And today I have won trophies, I am really happy, I have everything and I have a better life."

Several former Arsenal colleagues have made the same move to City, with Bacary Sagna the latest Arsenal star to move across, and Nasri continued:

"If the fans can't move on then it's too bad. They love their club, maybe they saw it as reason or that I betrayed them.

“But it's not that. I just look at for what's best for me; and that's what Bacary Sagna did, Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure."

Nasri, however couldn’t prevent his side from losing 3-0 to his former club in the Community Shield on Sunday.
