Twitter reacts to Samir Nasri's Manchester City's stunt

Samir Nasri

Twitter rips the Manchester City midfielder for his stunt ahead of the Capital One Cup final with Liverpool.

He was branded a mercenary by many-an-Arsenal fan for his decision to leave the Emirates for mega-rich Manchester City back in 2011.

But few can doubt that Samir Nasri is in fact completely loyal to City after going to rather extreme lengths to support his team-mates ahead of Sunday's League Cup final with Liverpool.

Indeed, Nasri, who will play no part at Wembley due to injury, has bleached his hair bright blue for the occasion.

It is safe to say that the barnet hasn't gone down well on social media, as a host of Twitter users took a moment to question the Frenchman's sanity.

This marks the second hairstyling faux pas that the France international has made in a matter of months, having punted for a blonde look earlier in the season.

In his defence, it has been an injury-ravaged season for Nasri, who has been sidelined with a hamstring problem since October.

The former Marseille man is nearing a return to full fitness, however, and trained on Friday for the first time since that injury. Here's to hoping he can stay fit - and stay away from the hair dye.
