I had held high hopes for Nasri, but now it seems his true colours have been revealed which seem to consist with that of someone who lacks maturity and professionalism as seen with his spat with Gallas and now the Arsenal faithful.
Samir upon his completion of the move to City said about Wenger and the Arsenal fans: “Now I am a City player and that is what I wanted from the start. I was a bit frustrated as I said to the manager [Wenger] that I wanted to leave. I stayed for the whole pre-season, but I had wanted to do it with City so I could get to know my team-mates.
“The fans here are passionate. They remind me a little of Marseille. Arsenal have good fans but they are not as passionate since they moved from Highbury to the Emirates. I remember when we played against Manchester City [last season] and lost 3-0 and the crowd were amazing. That is what I want.
“When you play football you want a good atmosphere and the stadium is unbelievable. When I saw the fans, they had tattoos and were passionate and that’s what I want. I’m here to play football, enjoy it and win the title, not for the sun or something like that.”
Hearing this, I am pretty pleased he has left the Emirates. It is clear he has little club loyalty and was lured by the ridiculous amounts of money Manchester ‘moneybags’ City had on offer. On a personal note, if Cesc came back to the club I would definitely welcome him with applause and cheer but in total contrast my greetings for Samir would be on the total opposite end of the spectrum.
All I can say is that a recently familiar chant will probably be sung with strong voice when he makes his return to the Emirates and definitely with plenty of passion. Be prepared Nasri.
