Samir Nasri has broken his Twitter silence to express his unhappiness at chants about him during Saturday’s game against Newcastle.
Arsenal fans, unhappy at having to go through another transfer saga with Nasri refusing to sign a new contract and reportedly on the verge of signing for Manchester City, re-arranged the lyrics of his song to call him a cunt.
On Twitter, Nasri said, “I heard what the fans were singing about me on Saturday and it is really disrespectful because I’m still a arsenal player” [sic].
Whether this is Nasri laying the groundwork for a public reconciliation or knowing he’s leaving and therefore having a little parting shot remains to be seen.
Perhaps a clue could be gained from his next Tweet when he referenced the departure of Cesc Fabregas. Nasri said, “Congratulation to my mate @cesc4official i will miss you world class player and top men” [sic]
Arseblog News would stand to be corrected on this but we’re pretty sure ‘congratulations’ is not quite the word to use in the circumstances.
Earlier, Arsene Wenger said he wanted the Frenchman to remain at the club, saying “Ideally I want Samir Nasri to stay, but as much as we were in a strong position on the contract side with Cesc, the situation is a bit different, but hopefully we can sort the situation out.”
Nasri’s comments will only add to the Arsenal manager’s headaches ahead of what is a crucial week for the club.
