William Gallas has lauched yet another scathing attack on Samir Nasri, suggesting that the Manchester City midfielder’s conduct in recent times will explain to football fans why he never got along with the 25-year old.
The compatriots, who have played together for both Arsenal and France, have never been able to see eye-to-eye, and have had a hostile relation with each other ever since Nasri allegedly refused to give up his seat on the French national team bus for legendary striker Theirry Henry.
Gallas was not part of the Les Bleus squad that went out in the quarterfinals of the ongoing European Champions, but did point to Nasri’s clash with a reporter in Donetsk to explain why he has not thought highly of the talented midfielder.
Nasri was involved in an altercation with a member of the press following France’s exit, calling a journalist a “son of a b****” after he was asked for his reaction over the defeat.
Gallas insisted that the scenario wasn’t the first where Nasri had used such expletives, saying: “There was a match with Arsenal in Rome and a serious discussion in the changing room at the end of the match. He lost a ball, I showed my disappointment, and he called me a ‘son of a w****’.”
Gallas also took a pot-shot at the people around Nasri, suggesting that an adherence to whatever the player wanted helped inflate the midfielder’s sense of arrogance.
“When a youngster has talent and is coveted by big teams, his club does everything to keep him and accepts his every whim.”
