Samir Nasri takes swipe at Arsenal again

Samir Nasri has taken a swipe at former club Arsenal once more, stating that he is glad that he is at Manchester City so he can be in the running to win trophies.

The France international left the Emirates Stadium last summer to join Roberto Mancini’s men, and had a parting dig at the north London club by stating that he was leaving to win silverware.

The attacking midfielder has once more slated Arsene Wenger’s men, which will infuriate fans of his ex-employers.

“Celebrate your third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles,” Nasri is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.

“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 money, only for sporting aspirations and if people don’t believe me that’s their problem,” he continued.

Nasri looks set to feature for France on Monday evening against England, and the City playmaker has admitted that losing is not an option.

“There is a great deal of confidence in the French camp but much will depend on the opening game against England.

“They remain an extremely tough opponent. I have had banter with Joe Hart and Joleon Lescott at City but losing is not an option.

“I would like to see both sides qualify but people need to understand that if France qualify at the expense of England then so be it,” he concluded.
