Samir Nasri In Hot Water After X-rated Bust Up With Journalist

Samir Nasri

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri is in hot water after a foul-mouthed outburst at a journalist, according to the Mirror.

The former Arsenal ace was dropped by coach Laurent Blanc for their quarter final clash with Spain following a dressing room bust-up after France’s defeat to Sweden in the group stages.

Spain eased in to the Semi finals thanks to a double from former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso and after the game, Nasri took his frustration out on a French journalist from Agence France Presse.

When asked about his thoughts on the game, Nasri replied with a foul-mouthed tirade:

“You are looking for s**t, looking for trouble.  F*** you, go f*** your mother, you son of a b****.”

Nasri is quoted as saying in the Mirror.

It’s then believed the midfielder offered the journalist outside before he was ushered away and on to the French team coach.

The 24-year-old’s future with the national team is now in doubt and Blanc has condemned his players actions, describing them as “embarrassing and regrettable”. He claims there is an underlying problem between Nasri and the French media, but insists he’ll take care of the matter with the player.

“There is a problem between the press and Samir Nasri. It was embarrassing and regrettable. If it is true, it is disrespectful to the journalist.

“This is unfortunate for his personal image and that of the national team. I’ve already told Samir what I had to say.”

Blanc is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

After scoring against England in France’s opener, Nasri put his finger over his mouth to indicate a ‘shhhh’ sign, which was believed to have been aimed at the French media.

French Football Federation President Noel Le Graethas also had his say on the matter, describing Nasri’s actions as ‘intolerable’:

“He has a difficult way of behaving. We will discuss things and take a look at his problem. I will ask the ­journalist to meet with me, but this is ­intolerable,”

Graethas is quoted as saying in the Mirror.

Nasri has a history of problems in France including a bust-up with former Arsenal team-mate William Gallas, who has previously described him as a ‘rat in the dressing room’, and the pair have regularly refused to shake hands before Premier League games.

    Nasri,represents everything people hate about some of the modern players. Greed, no loyalty to the club, arrogance,not very intelligent, and no respect for the senior players. In the long term, supporters will not follow their teams, as they are treated like mugs, by such players.

    Nisiri has never been a good player . Excellent players like Zidane, Patrick Viera, The great Henry and Bergkamp did not do such it makes him and Baloteli dull and irespectable players he is a small player with a small mentality too stupid.

    He is being very harshly judged since he is the villain according to Gooners worldwide BUT he is simply being himself, that is to say; an immature, narcissistic and rather adolescent Gallic clown.

    It’s so sad that such a talented player will end in such a drastic manner. Nasri has bein a disgrace! All his major problems started when he backstabed the trust Wenger, Arsenal and Arsenal fans placed on him. His days in City re numbered…..it is so sad that such a talent will end up bad cos of his attitude

    Na£ri is a mug. Not half as good as our other french players like Henry, Pires, Vierra.Benched at city, benched for France. Ha Ha you mug

    The bloke has no class. As a Gooner I’m chuffed he left my club. Very average player who had a decent half season and managed to dupe Man City into buying him. Nowhere near good enough for Arsenal, and clearly not much better for Man City seeing as he spent most of his time on the bench.

      I said the same buddy. He had 3 months when he played quite well and when city offered the money they paid I was so happy. He was not good enough to play for Arsenal and is not good enough for city that’s why he spent most of his time on the city bench. He thinks hes something he isn’t and that is a world class player. It makes me laugh that he has had a bust up with the media and hopefully he loses his place in the French national team. Very funny indeed. We have a far better team since he left and he says he won a medal with city but it was his team mates who won it for him lol.

    Soo glad we (arsenal) managed to trick city into thinking he was worth that money off the back of about 12 good games. They now have another out of control overated player on their hands along with Balotelli. lol well done wenger, i doubted for a few weeks when we let him go but now it appears you were right again! COYG!

    His problem’s started when he ”Back staped” Wenger. The French media Love Arsene Wenger because he represents France with so much Humility and dignity unlike Nasri who Is the complete OPPOSITE!

    nasri, should make sure his ill tampered nature does not ruin his footballing skills.if what was reported is anything to go by………….then is really unfortunate.

    Arsenal made a lot of money from the transfer and now he is France and Man City’s problem. Hahaha Enjoy….

    I don’t think it is just the money that has gone to his head. I think he just has a terrible personality and doesn’t respect anyone. I recall him being disrespectful to Henry on the team bus when he was very young and would have been on a comparatively small wage.

        If the media knows how to tarnish the image, then Nasri is doomed. He stabbed Mr. Wenger on the back for the sake of money. Now he thinks that by winning the trophy with Manchester City makes special, and he is wrong because within few weeks he will find himself like me, a no name who has to rely on football blogs for publicity.

    “At Arsenal you are a prince ,but at Manchester United you will be treated like a king”, said Patrice Evra when lobbying for Nasri to join him at Man U…. . Well , Nasri is no prince!, as a matter of fact he lacks basic social skills required from a successful young human being. I’ll go out on the limb here and say that his only skill in life is ability to play football . Luckily for him there are millions to be made if you are a talented footballer and hardly anything else is required

    Infact he’s stupid!what on earth did he think he was doing?he needs to be cautioned.even his behaviour is becoming intolerable everyday everytime.Think of how dare talk to his former club who raised him up.I think blanc should find a way to make him stop this brutal attitude…They had better take him to psychiatric hospital…stupid boy
