When Samir Nasri Met Gary Cook Things Turned Ugly

by | 25th, August 2011

SAMIR Nasri is at Manchester City. He’s in the stadium meeting another former Arsenal player on City’s book (there are now six – four current players and scouting Brian Marwood), Patrick Vieira. He then meets Gary Cook, City’s CEO. Cook is 53 years young. He shakes Nasri’s hand, as a gentleman might, and then does a kjnd of twist and palms the Frenchman. Is this an attempt to cement a relationship that is not just about money and business?

Does Cook really believe anything but money counts for anything at Manchester City..?

See if you can hear Cook saying:

“How are you brother?”

Or Nasri saying:

“It is unfair because I think we have more merit as a club than those who have built their teams with millions of pounds whereas Arsenal have brought in young footballers, who have come here to play a certain kind of football and who have developed” – Samir Nasri, April 21, 2010.
