Samir Nasri reveals it in social networks
Samir Nasri, a former Sevilla footballer; who is currently in the ranks of the Belgian Anderlecht; told in a relaxed interview broadcast through his Instagram account the details of his curious relationship with Jorge Sampaoli, a technician with whom he met in Nervion during the 2016-17 season.
In that season, Nasri played a total of 30 matches in all competitions with the Sevilla coach, in which he managed to score three goals and distribute three assists on the goal.
They gave me chills when I listened to Sampaoli’s speeches in the locker room and I didn’t understand Spanish! “Added Nasri. The 41 times international for France has revealed a curious gentlemen’s agreement that he reached with Sampaoli when he signed for Sevilla: “He loved me so much that he told me:
‘Come to our team, you can drink, go out, do what you want. I’ll cover it in front of the club. All I’m asking is that you be good at the pitch over the weekend. In fact, if I wanted to go see my family on a weekend that I didn’t have to play, Sampaoli told me that he could take care of the dog for me, “he confessed.
What happened in Los Angeles ruined my season. It was a vitamin injection, legal and I had a prescription. The clinic injected me with much more product than expected. It was destroyed because I was going to be penalized for two years. I did not want to play more after that. So I said to Sampaoli “put me on the bench”, but the coach always wanted me to play. I was lost, I was nervous and angry with everything. I did not show it but on the field; football is over for me I didn’t want to play soccer anymore. I thought about it all the time..
