Granted, it’s not actually that grievous a jibe but, upon his arrival at Man City, Samir Nasri questioned the ‘passion’ of Arsenal fans – the very same supporters that took the time to sing him a hearty, fully personalised chant for the entirety of the season opener against Newcastle but a fortnight ago. How soon we forget.
Speaking to CityTV (unless it was a fake CityTV account), Nasri delivered his parting shot:
“I can see they are really passionate and it reminds me a little bit of Marseille. Arsenal have good fans but not that passionate since they moved from Highbury to the Emirates.
“City fans are really passionate. I remember when we played against City, when we lost 3-0, the crowd was amazing. That is what I want. When you play football, it is for a good atmosphere.”
…and £185,000 a week.
Yadda yadda yadda. To be honest, I’m feeling far too knackered/jaded/drunk this morning to make a thing out of this – especially as it’s not really much of a ‘thing’ in the first place.
Any strong feelings either way? Feel free to vent them below…
