Footage has emerged of Samir Nasri being confronted by aggressive Arsenal fan at Man City game

New footage shows the moment Samir Nasri was confronted by an Arsenal during their Premier League fixture against Manchester City.

Nasri, who played for both Arsenal and Man City during his career, attended the Emirates showdown last weekend.

He was at the stadium for punditry work, but his outing in England was marred after an Arsenal supporter confronted him.

Sam Matterface claims the person started ‘bellowing’ at the former France international .

“There’s a supporter who was bellowing in his face at this moment in time,” he said.

“It’s a bit unnecessary from him getting involved with Nasri who’s just trying to do his job.

“Nasri is just standing there being barracked by the supporter.”

Reporter Alex Crook added: “A fan has just been thrown out of the Emirates for squaring up to Samir Nasri near the press box and then started throwing punches at fellow Arsenal fans. Absolute moron.”

A video of the incident has since emerged online as it sheds light on the moment between the aggressive Arsenal fan and Nasri. Check it out below:

The clip shows the 36-year-old stood in a gangway just outside the seating area.

A fan can be heard repeatedly shouting ‘sold his soul’ to Nasri, who is conversing with Arsenal stewards amid a crowd of onlookers.

An Arsenal fan can also be seen somewhat comforting Nasri amid the abuse aimed at him by the fan.

The attacking midfielder enjoyed three seasons at Arsenal before securing a switch to Man City in 2011, where he won two Premier League titles.

He left the Gunners to join the Blues to win titles. Speaking about his transfer, he said: “[The difference between City and Arsenal?] Titles, I hope. I am 24 and everyone says I am a good player, but I haven’t won anything.

“I loved my time at Arsenal but I have never won anything with them. This year, their best player left – Fabregas.

“When you are at a big club sometimes you have to bring in big players to win. Maybe Arsenal didn’t have this mentality.”
