Manchester City morning round-up: Nasri describes the biggest disappointment of his career

Samir Nasri France

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester City.

Samir Nasri has been quoted by Goal suggesting that missing the World Cup was the biggest disappointment of his career.

The midfielder was omitted from the France side for the tournament in Brazil, which took place last summer.

“Missing the World Cup was the biggest disappointment of my career. That is what hurts me the most,” said the Frenchman.

Nasri suggests that Didier Deschamps should have had the guts to explain the decision to him in depth.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has been quoted by the Belfast Telegraph claiming Chelsea are not special.

Chelsea maintain their lead over the Manchester club earlier this week, currently holding a seven point advantage at the top of the table.

Nasri says he’s not impressed with the Chelsea line-up and claims his team have been better in meetings between the clubs this season.

“I'm a big fan of Mourinho, but I am not impressed with his team, not at all. We have played them twice, one time with 10 men, and we were better than them,” he said.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been quoted by ESPN suggesting his side will never give up on the Premier League title.

City have a lot of work to do over the next few weeks to claw back the seven point gap to Chelsea.

Kompany’s comments are proof of the fighting qualities currently in the Manchester City squad, which the club need to use to full effect.

“Belief never goes. Past experiences should give us enough confidence to carry on and go for it. It has happened before,” said the skipper.
