Manchester City’s Samir Nasri on exclusion from France World Cup squad: ‘That’s life, it’s good for my club!’ [Video]

Samir Nasri spoke to the local Abu Dhabi media after Man City’s friendly win over Al Ain this evening.

Nasri said it’s been great to finally get to meet their Emirati fans, as the United Arab Emirates has naturally become a stronghold of Man City support in recent years.

Asked by his interviewer about his World Cup exclusion, Nasri was very diplomatic, and seems to be over it already, saying: ‘Yeah, it wasn’t supposed to be like that, but that’s life!

It’s good for my club! I’ll rest all summer, go on holidays, and come back fresh for next season.’

So much for the theory of a petulant Samir Nasri being unable to accept managers’ decisions…
