Samir Nasri involvement on US tour ‘angers Manchester City team-mates’ who label him ‘arrogant’

24 Jul

Samir Nasri’s inclusion on Manchester City’s US tour has angered a number of his team-mates, who have labelled the controversial midfielder as ‘arrogant’.

Nasri isn’t part of Pep Guardiola’s plans, and is subject of a UEFA investigation into alleged doping rule breach, which could land him with a hefty ban. 

But he was used as a second-half substitute in the clash with rivals Manchester United last week, causing consternation among some City players, according to the Daily Mail. 

One insider told Sportsmail: ‘The squad don’t understand why Nasri is even here. He is very unpopular due to his arrogant attitude. Some of the squad even want him to go back to Manchester.’

But City want to use the US trip to put Nasri in the shop window, hoping to get his £120,000-a-week pay off the wage bill at the Etihad. 

Nasri is waiting to hear if UEFA will charge him over his visit to the Drip Doctors in Los Angeles, where he may have received IV treatment in contrary to the European governing bodies rules.
