Former Arsenal player Samir Nasri accused Frenchman Arsene Wenger of “overplaying him”. According to the French attacking midfielder even though his form was much better when he played for the Gunners, he wasn’t feeling as good as he does now playing for City.
Arsenal’s fans accused the French midfielder of leaving the club for pure financial reasons and for choosing City’s money over his own desire, but according to himself it was about something much different than that, he prefers to send his time on the bench!
“At Arsenal, I played too much.” Nasri whined.
“I score less than at Arsenal, but I don’t have the same role.”
“I came here to win the title, play at the highest level and I’m improving.”
Nobody is vitally important for a team like Arsenal, but unfortunately Samir Nasri’s very late departure left the Gunners uncovered in the midfield. Fabregas’ move to Barca added to that, so we can understand why Arsenal’s season was such a poor one, and frankly speaking we could either blame the players for leaving or we could blame Wenger for not preventing this or not bringing in some quality replacements within a timely fashion.
Nasri will forever be a player less favored by the Gunners fans despite having proved his skills at the club. His scandalous departure erased all the good things he did for Arsenal, and this statement won’t help his case at all.
I seriously hope that Arsenal overtake Man City for second place before the end of the season.
