Nasri makes touching revelations on his end of career interview



A man with career full of ups and downs.

Suspected of having taken doping products, the midfielder was suspended for a year for doping in February 2018, before returning to competition in early 2019, under the Hammers jersey. Today, Samir Nasri has decided to say stop, he who is now a consultant for Canal + and the program “Canal Champions Club”. The main concerned, who has never really formalized the end of his career, has however decided to come back to it in a long interview with the Journal du Dimanche. An interview full of confidences.

Trained at Olympique de Marseille, Samir Nasri then continued his career in England (Arsenal, Manchester City, West Ham), Spain (Sevilla FC), Turkey (Antalyaspor) and Belgium (RSC Anderlecht). Often attractive with the ball in the foot, the now 34-year-old player has had some success, for example he was England champion in 2012 and 2014 with the Citizens. But all was not rosy.

“I couldn’t see myself coming back to France if it wasn’t for OM.”

“One episode hurt me a lot and changed my relationship with football: my suspension. I found that more than unfair, I had not taken any doping product. It was just an injection of vitamins because I was sick. It cut me off in my tracks. I came back to West Ham, London with a trainer I knew (Manuel Pellegrini, Editor’s note) : it was perfect. But I got injured three times in a row ”, first launched Samir Nasri.

“There, Vincent Kompany called me to come to Anderlecht. There was an emotional side, but also the idea of being a player and also a little in the staff. As I would like to train, I told myself that I would learn from him. It didn’t go as planned. Then the championship was stopped because of the Covid. Afterwards, I didn’t necessarily want to. No challenge kicked me. And I couldn’t see myself coming back to France if it wasn’t for OM. ” A descent into hell which therefore never ended on the ground.
