Happy as Larry when he signed on a season long loan with Sevilla after his future at Manchester City seemed tied with the substitute bench, Samir Nasri has unfortunately had his smile wiped off his face relatively quickly.
He might still be pleased to play for the Spanish side in the long run, but it looks unlikely he’ll be doing so next weekend, as the French attacking midfielder has already managed to injure himself.
According to Sport, the player is suffering from a muscle contraction in his thigh, which everyone is at a loss to explain.
The Catalan newspaper says no one really knows how it’s happened, but the former Arsenal star is now a doubt for the weekend clash against Las Palmas.
This has all happened despite the player saying he was in ‘perfect physical condition’ when he signed for the La Liga club, and Nasri has apparently been training by himself without the ball on Monday and Tuesday morning.
Not the start he would have wanted, that’s for sure…
