Samir Nasri's Career Reaches An All-Time Low

Samir Nasri's Career Reaches An All-Time Low

On Deadline Day, we told you how Samir Nasri's career had reached an all-time low after his contract with Turkish outfit Antalyaspor was terminated by mutual consent, but he's hit an even bigger low now.

That's because, according to MARCA, the former Arsenal and Manchester City man is to be hit with a one-year ban from football from UEFA in relation to his infamous trip to see the "Drip doctors" in 2016.

They say that Nasri was hopeful of returning to La Liga with Las Palmas, who wanted him to replace Jonathan Vieira, who has just moved to the Chinese Super League.

But the European football governing body have ruled that the practice carried out when Nasri was at Sevilla he received at the clinic fell foul of UEFA's anti-doping regulations.

A two-year ban was the original punishment, but the final verdict from the Court Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) was to half the sentence.

The whole Drip doctors scandal is one that we will never, ever forget - with the two-time Premier League winner having his Twitter account hacked in brutal fashion by ex-girlfriend Anara Atanes.

Here are some of the tweets that were sent out back on 27 December 2016:





Absolute madness.
