Nasri: City Fans Are Really Passionate

Nasri: City Fans Are Really Passionate



City and France midfielder Samir Nasri has spoken to our pals at citytv of the impression he has of Manchester City supporters...

'It's a big relief to be honest. It was a long negotiation between the towo clubs and now I'm finally a City player. That's what I wanted since the start so I'm really happy.

'I was a little frustrated. I told manage I wanted to leave as I wanted to do the whole pre season with Manchester and get to know my team mates.

'Today is a big day for me, a new start and I'm looking forward to do it.

'City supporters are really passionate and it reminds me of Marseille. Arsenal have good fans but not that passionate. I remember when we played at City and lost three nil the crowd was amazing. That's what I want...atmosphere. Even the weather is nice when I arrived today. I don't see the difference from London but I am here to play football, to enjoy it and win the title.

'I spoke on holiday with Kolo Toure, Gael Clichy and Patrick Vieira. It was important to have their opinions. Vieira is a legend in France and everyone loves him.

'When he says Manchester City is the place to be and they want to win everything you listen.'


Nasri went on to confirm he has been welcomed on the telephone by City Chairman the shrewd Khaldoon Al Mubarak and spoke of his respect for Kun Aguero and David Silva:

'I love this kind of player. They are not tall, like me. They have quick feet and they love to play. When you play with players like this you are always looking to have a connection with them. With YaYa, Dzeko and Tevez if he stays, I just can't wait to play with them!

'In France they call Manchester City The Galacticos as was once said of Real Madrid.'


Finally, the quicksilver new Blue spoke of his final game at Arsenal against Liverpool:

'I wanted to play. I am not good at negotiations and I have agents who have the quality to do that. Me, I just want to play. The pre seaosn was hard. I didn't play the last couple of days because the manager wanted to prepare his side for The Premier League. When I saw the discussions continue I told him I wanted to play. I needed competition and promised to stay professional until the end.'

I lost my voice cheering Aguero at the end of the Swansea game and couldn't talk on the way home. I'll gladly prove my passion by doing likewise for Nasri. :D

Nasri wil make a massive difference even though we are already playing really well and for long periods playing fantastic stuff. The squad is awesome and we will win trophies this season, I'm sure of it.
