Nasri mocked pot belly as former premier league star displays ‘fuller figure’

Nasri mocked pot belly as former premier league star displays 'fuller figure'

Football fans have mocked former Premier League star Samir Nasri for his ‘fuller figure’ as the Frenchman made his first footballing appearance post-retirement.

Nasri was appearing for a ‘Legends of Marseille’ team who were taking on a UNICEF side in a charity game at the Stade Velodrome.

Didier Drogba headed up the Marseille side, which also featured Djibril Cisse and Middlesbrough hero Fabrizio Ravanelli, with the clash raising money for his Didier Drogba Foundation alongside UNICEF.

However, it was the appearance of the recently retired Nasri that gained attention on social media, with fans poking fun at the ‘fuller’ Frenchman.

A fourth added: “Don’t tell me that’s Samir Nasri. Wtf man.”

Fans were quick to notice his change of figure

Nasri announced his retirement from professional football last month after spending a year out of the game following an exit from Belgian side Anderlecht.

In his heyday, Nasri was considered one of the finest players in the Premier League – especially at his peak at Arsenal.

A move to Manchester City provided a Premier League triumph, but after leaving City, Nasri served a doping ban that he revealed played a part in his retirement.

“An incident really hurt me and changed my relationship with football: my suspension. I found it more than unfair as I didn’t take any drugs,” he told Le Journal du Dimanche.

Nasri continued: “After that [leaving Anderlecht], I didn’t necessarily have the motivation anymore.

“No challenge really suited me. And I couldn’t see myself coming back to France if it wasn’t at OM.”
