Arsenal fan 'removed from Emirates Stadium after confrontation with Samir Nasri'

Arsenal fan 'removed from Emirates Stadium after confrontation with Samir Nasri'

Shocking reports from the Emirates.

An Arsenal fan has been removed from the Emirates Stadium after a confrontation with former Gunners midfielder Samir Nasri, according to reports.

Nasri is at the stadium doing punditry work for the Premier League fixture between Arsenal and Manchester City.

According to talkSPORT commentator Sam Matterface, a fan approached Nasri and started 'bellowing' at him.

Matterface explained: "There's a supporter who was bellowing in his face at this moment in time.

"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."

talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook then provided an update on the situation, writing: "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."

The French midfielder played for Arsenal between 2008 and 2011, before making a controversial move to join City.

Nasri was a two-time Premier League winner in Manchester, and ended his playing career in 2020 after short spells at West Ham and Anderlecht.

Speaking after his transfer to City in 2011, Nasri revealed he left Arsenal due to a desire to win titles. The Gunners had not won a trophy since 2005 at the time of his departure.

He explained (quotes via The Guardian): "[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."

He also said: "When you are at a big club sometimes you have to bring in big players to win. Maybe Arsenal didn't have this mentality."

SPORTbible has contacted Arsenal for comment.
