Man City’s Nasri welcomes Frank Lampard’s Champions League experience ahead of loan deal [Mirror]
Frank Lampard’s loan move to Manchester City looks imminent, with the New York City man being invited to play temporarily for the Premier League champions while awaiting the MLS 2015 season.
The news has been positively met within the City dressing room, it seems, as tomorrow’s Mirror attributes quotes to Samir Nasri welcoming Lamps to the Etihad.
Nasri believes Lampard’s Champions League know-how and nous, having twice reached the final and won it outright in 2012, will be a big plus for City, as they try to make the breakthrough beyond the last 16 stage for the firs time.
In no way whatsoever did Nasri say Lampard could help them actually win it though, as the Mirror mendaciously claim.
