Frightened Samir Nasri being confronted by Arsenal fan at Man City game


Footage has emerged of a startled Samir Nasri being confronted by an irate Arsenal fan during Sunday’s heated Premier League encounter against Manchester City.

The former France international played for both clubs during a colourful, and at times,

Controversial career during which he won two league titles during his time with City.

Arsenal fans have never forgotten Nasri’s acrimonious departure, however, which came in the summer of 2011

When Arsene Wenger was force to sell the creative midfielder,

As well as captain Cesc Fabregas, within a matter of weeks.

Nasri’s decision to leave Arsenal, who made a substantial profit from his sale, was ultimately vindicate

When he helped City to their dramatic final day victory over QPR which sealed their first Premier League triumph.

The former Marseille star regularly booed on his returns to the Emirates Stadium as a player and the hostility was still in evidence last weekend.

When one irate Arsenal fan squared up to him and accused him of ‘selling his soul’.

The 36-year-old was comforted by security staff while the supporter was ushered away by fellow Arsenal fans who urged him to leave Nasri alone.

Arsenal, meanwhile, won the game thanks to Gabriel Martinelli’s late winner which ended a run of 12 consecutive league defeats against City.

The three points moved Mikel Arteta’s side above their title rivals

They headed into the international break joint top of the table with Tottenham.

He went on to win two Premier League titles and a League Cup during his six-year stay at City before moving to Turkish outfit Antalyaspor in 2017.

Nasri returned to England to play for West Ham in 2019.

He finished his career at Anderlecht before being release in 2020. He formally announced his retirement from the game at the age of 34 the following year.
