Ex-Arsenal Star Reveals Why He Won’t Forgive Samir Nasri


Ex-Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has reiterated his disdain for former Gunners teammates Samir Nasri in his latest interview.

Samir Nasri and Emmanuel Frimpong didn’t see eye-to-eye when they were both on the payroll at the Emirates Stadium.

Emmanuel Frimpong talked about their relationship in a chat with The Athletic.

According to him, the genesis of their feud could be traced back to the league game between Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium some years ago.

Frimpong was sent off for the Gunners who went on to lose 2-0 to Liverpool largely due to the numerical advantage.

After the game, Samir Nasri called out Emmanuel Frimpong for his part in the defeat.

Frimpong is still at a loss on why the former French international will call him out in front of his teammates amidst the fact that it was just his second game for the first team.

The Arsenal-Liverpool match was just his second outing for the first team and it ended with a red card.

Samir Nasri and Emmanuel Frimpong almost came to blows after a Carabao Cup tie in 2011 and they had to be separated by their teammates.

Frimpong spent two years with the Arsenal first team and he made 16 appearances during that time.
