The ex-Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri refused to sign a new contract at the Emirates last season and Arsene Wenger was forced to sell the French international to Manchester City for £24million in the summer.
Nasri has had trouble breaking into the City first team after some indifferent performances and has only actually played the whole 90 minutes for City nine times since his arrival, but still thinks he made the right decision to leave Arsenal and is now ready to show his best.
He said: “I never doubted I made the right choice in coming here and we’re top of the league and still on course for the Europa League too so I’m happy
“What Arsenal do doesn’t matter, it was just my choice. I don’t want Arsenal to fall down.
“I wanted them to win the FA Cup or something because I’ve respect for them.”
But he says that the reason the Gunner’s don’t win trophies is because of their failure to win if their ‘beautiful football’ doesn’t work.
Nasri continued: “It’s football. Sometimes it’s good to win ugly.
“You don’t always have to play good football to win.
“Arsenal play good football but after seven years they don’t win so that’s difficult for them but the manager has a good philosophy. I know they’ll find some solution.”
Surely it’s still important to play good football as well as winning Samir, and surely it’s better to actually be ON the pitch however the team plays!
