Samir Nasri retires - interesting read


Sad. I’ve got fond memories of Nasri from his stay at Sevilla.
Some of the most fun football Sevilla have played under Sampaoli, his tactics almost solely revolved around Nasri.


Me too… I really liked his style of play but sometimes he was too selfish and kept the ball too long in a way that ruined the action. He messed up big time against Leicester, but in overall played very well that season. These behind the scene things reveal a lot that we didn’t know at the time - obviously he wasn’t in the best mental state to play in the second part of the season and it showed with his drop in performance.


I’m having a tough time wrapping my head around the fact that he’s only 34. I feel like he played for us like 10 years ago… A lot has happened since the 2016/17 season.
