Samir Nasri was involved in a confrontation with an Arsenal fan at the Emirates Stadium during the Gunners clash with Manchester City.

The retired French midfielder, who played for both of the Premier League giants, was the victim of verbal abuse from a supporter, as reported by talkSPORT’s commentary team.

Explaining what was going on, Sam Matterface said: “There’s a supporter who was bellowing in his face at this moment in time. 

“It’s a bit unnecessary from him getting involved with Nasri who’s just trying to do his job [punditry].

“Nasri is just standing there being barracked by the supporter, there should be more stewards around here making sure it doesn’t happen.”

Former Gunner Perry Groves added: “This is where the press set-up is not the best. The security have to get the fan out.

“There’s a couple of Arsenal fans, and it pains me to say it, who have disgraced themselves.”

Alex Crook was just as shocked, commenting: “He looks really shaken I have to say.

“He’s being abused here by Arsenal fans and there’s stewards just standing there watching, this is really poor.”

The supporter was then seen throwing punches at fellow Arsenal fans as he was apprehended and removed from the ground.

Nasri was later seen taking selfies with other Arsenal fans after the nasty scenes had subdued.

The incident comes weeks after Manchester United legend Roy Keane was involved in a confrontation with an Arsenal fan during the Gunners’ 3-1 win over the Red Devils last month.

Former France regular Nasri played for the Gunners between 2008 and 2011 before making a controversial move to the newly-monied Man City, winning two Premier League titles.

Ending his career with Anderlecht in 2020, Nasri was returning to the Emirates on media duties.
