FRANCE star Samir Nasri has again lashed out at his Arsenal critics as he prepares to heap misery on England fans in tomorrow’s Euro 2012 clash.
Nasri faced a torrent of abuse from fans of his old club after defecting to Manchester City last summer and was accused of being driven by greed.
After City lifted the title Nasri jeered at Arsenal critics: “Celebrate your third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles.”
And now Nasri has again stuck the boot into the Gunners claiming a day does not pass when he is not happy he left them.
He said: “I’m glad I left because City are far more competitive and are winning titles, not dreaming about it. I have said 300 times I did not leave Arsenal for money, only for sporting aspirations and if people don’t believe me that’s their problem.”
Nasri is relishing Euro 2012, particularly the crunch clash with England.
He said: “There is a great deal of confidence in the French camp but much will depend on the opening game against England.
“They remain an extremely tough opponent. I have had banter with Joe Hart and Joleon Lescott at City but losing is not an option.
“I would like to see both sides qualify but people need to understand that if France qualify at the expense of England then so be it.”
