Former Manchester City star, Samir Nasri, has reminisced about his clash with coach Roberto Mancini, during their time together at the club.

The former Arsenal winger disclosed he once berated the 57-year-old manager at Arsenal.

The 34-year old added that he abased the Italy manager as he insulted him (Mancini) by all names.

Nasri said he also abused his children who sometimes came to play in the reserves or train with them back then.


The French former player sealed a move from Arsenal to Etihad Stadium through Mancini in the summer of 2011.

Meanwhile, Nasri was an achiever at City having registered 27 goals in addition to 40 assists in 176 competitions.


He also won two Premier League titles with the current leaders on the Premier League table.

Nasri told Canal +: “In the first half, he kept talking to me. I told him to stop. If you are not happy, you take me out. ”

“I get ready to go out at half-time. In the dressing room, I take off my shoes and tell Yaya Toure, who is sitting next to me, that if he speaks badly to me, I’ll throw my boots at him because the coach used to disrespect and speak badly to players.”

“I insulted him by all names. Even his children who sometimes came to play in the reserves or who trained with us.”

He added: “I left for Paris the next day. Two days later, I was on the bench against Manchester United. The president came from Abu-Dhabi to see us and told Mancini that if I was fit, we would win.


“I returned to the team, and we made up in a private plane that he paid for with me because I had to return from Paris.”
