Former France international, Arsenal and Manchester City player, Samir Nasri’s contract runs out at the end of the current campaign, but he is unsure whether his long-term future will be at West Ham.
Nasri joined West Ham on a six-month deal in January after completing an 18-month doping ban, but injury has restricted him to just six appearances. He said “I got an injury because I wasn’t used to playing week in, week out when I have been out of the game for so long.
Now the manager takes his time with me. I have seven games left and I just want to play free of injury and then we will sit down and see what is next.”
Samir Nasri is used to fighting for what he wants, The 31-year-old fought to have his career back so his son could have a memory of him playing, but admits he had to work hard and prove himself.
“If you don’t believe in yourself, who’s going to do it for you,” the former Arsenal forward said “I’m a guy who is confident …”
Nasri described his period out of football as the “worst experience of his career” but he insists it has changed him for the better. “I thought my career was over so having this second chance makes me lucky. It changed me for the better and now I see things differently, Before I used to be more into the controversy.
If I heard something about me I would go head-to-head with it. I’d talk about it instead of being calm and an example for young people who are watching this sport. I have many regrets about what I think about my career because I didn’t achieve what I could have done. The fact I have a second chance makes me lucky and I want to enjoy it until the last moment.”
“Before sometimes you don’t know how blessed you are to do this job. Now, I just take one day at a time, try to enjoy it as much as possible and try to be as professional as I can be to help my team-mates because I thought at one point I’d lost it.”
Samir Nasri despite uncertainty about his future at West Ham says he has something to prove, “I want to prove to myself more than anything else that I still have it and I can compete in the best league in the world.”
