Excellent Technical footballer.
Sure he would have benefited even further under the guidance of Pep if timings were different.
He would have fitted into the current squad well

He was a good player but he didn't bring out what he could have been, he could have been much better based on his abilities, but he was weak in the brain and he was also a very lazy and alibi player, he passed to whoever was next to him.

A luxury we almost couldn’t afford that day!

As I said elsewhere, he was a player I admired, with exceptional technique on the ball. However, in that instance, exceptional technique wasn’t the order of the day.
Yeah, when yer get a specific technique that a professional hasn't got in his repertoire he becomes the same as the rest of us - mediocre at best!!

So much technical skill. With a different mentality, I suspect he could have occupied a seat at a table reserved for the very finest players.

Think it might have been the back end of Pellegrini’s last season. 3-0?

I liked Nasri - always felt he could have been even better than he was, but an important part of two title-winning sides. Enjoyed watching him.

Yeah he came on as a sub against Sunderland in Pep’s first game. Pep wanted him to stay but Samir wanted guarantees about starting games, as he said at the times because he was 30, I think, Pep couldn’t give him that and as they say the rest is history, he moved on. Pep said he rated him but it wasn’t to be. Didn’t he and Yaya come back over weight that pre season and that go down well with Guardiola at all.

Another extremely gifted but frustrating player from our recent past. At his best - sublime. I always liked Nasri but lamented that he could have been a much better player if only he were fully committed to being so.
