Samir Nasri Banned From Football For Six Months
It has been confirmed that former Manchester City and Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri has been banned from football for six months.
According to MARCA, the player was set to be hit with a one-year ban from football from UEFA in relation to his infamous trip to see the "Drip Doctors".
But Nasri's legal representative, Juan de Dias Crespo Perez, told Press Association Sport that a six-month suspension has been imposed.
In December 2016, Nasri received 500 millilitres of hydration in the form of sterile water containing micronutrient components and following an investigation into the treatment, the 30-year-old has now been banned from football, according to ITV.

Nasri was hopeful of returning to La Liga with Las Palmas, who wanted him to replace Jonathan Vieira, but it looks like that deal will be in jeoprody.

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