Emirates playmaker upset by supporter chants.
Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri has blasted the ‘disrespectful’ fans for chants questioning his commitment to the club.
The 24-year-old, who has one-year left on his contract, has refused to sign a new deal with the Gunners which has attracted the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United.
The France international has refused a new £110,000-a-week offer from manager Arsene Wenger with City willing to pay £185,000.
Wenger is willing to lose him for nothing in 12 months time but pressure from the board and Nasri’s reluctance to take part in pre-season has softened the manager’s stance.
But the Arsenal boss is still hopeful he can convince Nasri to stay, particularly after the £35million sale of Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona.
Nasri did not play in the 0-0 draw against Newcastle United because of illness, but was the subject of abuse from some sections of the travelling support.
The Gunners faithful questioned his loyalty and labelled him greedy with the song the chant based on KC and the Sunshine’s song ‘Give it up’.
“You’re a greedy ****, greedy ****, You’re a greedy ****,” the supporters chanted.
Nasri, who is suspended for Tuesday night’s Champions League play-off first leg against Udinese at Emirates Stadium, used his Twitter account to hit back.
“I heard what the fans were singing about me on Saturday and it is really disrespectful because I’m still a [sic] arsenal player,” he tweeted.
