Only two days after picking up his Premier League winners medal Samir Nasri has once again taken to the media to tell Arsenal fans to forget about him.

Nasri was heavily criticised by some sections of the Arsenal support for choosing to signed for Manchester`s Mercenaries over a new contract in North London, citing his rather hefty new pay-packet as his major influence in his decision.

Of course non of us can truly know what motivated Samir to join City, but football fans do what football fans do. We`re no different from any other set of fans, if you leave our club to join a rival then you`re going to get boo`ed it`s that simple.

However Nasri`s insistence that he just wants to move on is somewhat betrayed by the fact that ? well ? he never shuts up talking about it whenever he`s in the spotlight.

He said on French televison, ‘People at Arsenal tried to make out that I came here for the money, I hope they are watching me now collecting my Premier League winner’s medal.”

‘I believe they have not won a trophy for many seasons now.”

‘If all that I was interested in was money, the easiest decision would have been to stay at Arsenal, picking up my money every week and walking into the team.

‘There are many people doing this right now at Arsenal.

‘I made the hard choice to come and fight for my place at a big club, where they never settle for second best, and I have proved it correct.

I now hope the Arsenal fans can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles.’


Nice one Sami, that`ll help your cause.
