Former Man City winger Samir Nasri has announced his retirement from professional football aged just 34.

Nasri signed for City from Arsenal back in 2011 in a £25m deal as they looked to become a force in English football. The former France international was a key part of the squad under Roberto Mancini between 2011/12 and 2013/14.

A tendon injury kept him out of action for several months in Manuel Pellegrini's final season at the club, before Pep Guardiola loaned him out to Sevilla almost immediately after joining the club in 2016.

Injuries plagued him throughout the remainder of his career and he was also served with an 18-month doping ban after testing positive for banned substances in 2018.

Former City captain Vincent Kompany signed Nasri on a short-term contract for Belgian club Anderlecht, but the COVID-19 pandemic meant the domestic season was cut short and he was only able to make eight appearances in total.

Since leaving in 2020, Nasri has been unable to find a club and has now announced that he has retired and will continue to work as a pundit for French broadcaster Canal+.

Nasri played 176 games for City across five seasons, scoring 27 goals, with the club winning two Premier League titles and a League Cup.
