Samir Nasri Impressed in Debut Match for Arsenal

Arsenal’s French international Samir Nasri impressed everybody with his spirited performance in his debit match for Arsenal. It is not only that he scored the winning goal and handed Arsenal three points in the opening match of the season; rather it is his versatility on the field. Starting as a left flak, Nasri played almost everywhere in the field, giving no chance to the opposition to track him within a certain territory. His understanding with Gael Clichy was also something eye-catching.

In his post-match interview, the French midfielder said that he could not have asked for a better start in English football. He felt very comfortable in his debut match without facing any big problem, even though many thought he might need some time to adapt to the English style of football. The midfielder added that he was triaging very hard to increase his physical strength which is very important in English football. Nasri now wants to continue his form in the coming weeks. Manger Arsene Wenger is also happy with Nasri’s debut match performance and said that Nasri has some qualities of former Arsenal star Robert Pires because, he thinks, Nasri can change direction very easily like Pires.

Samir Nasri joined Arsenal on a £12million deal this Summer. It seems that Wenger once again purchased the right man for the right job.
