Some football fans on Twitter have been losing their minds after Samir Nasri featured for Marseille legends in a charity match at the Stade Velodrome… looking a little rotund.
Throughout Nasri’s career at the top level, whether it be for Arsenal or Manchester City, there was never a question mark over his footballing ability. His off the field affairs, which brought unwanted attention to his private life, were a different matter entirely.
Nasri could never have been considered the ultimate professional, not even close, and that may well be why he has managed to let himself go to such a degree just FIVE WEEKS after announcing his retirement for the game.
As the 34-year-old pulled on the Marseille shirt once again in a charity match, nobody was discussing the joy of seeing him back on a football pitch once again, rather how his weight has ballooned during his time away from football.
Twitter went absolutely mental after the unflattering snaps began to circulate…
