‘Good food and beautiful girls’: Nasri reveals why he’s SO happy at Sevilla

Date Posted,December 22, 2016

Samir Nasri is back to his best for Sevilla and the Andalucian city’s delicious tapas and beautiful women seem to be the cause of his renaissance.

The 29-year-old has revealed why he decided to swap Manchester City for Los Rojiblancos, where he has three goals and an assist this season.

Nasri discussed the club with Pep Guardiola, sporting director Monchi and current teammate Adil Rami, but conceded the Spanish lifestyle appealed to him a great deal too.

“Guardiola wanted me to stay, but when your head needs a change, after five years in Manchester – where I had lots of injuries last season – I wanted to start something new and fresh,” Nasri told the Spanish media .

“When I spoke to Monchi and Rami, it seemed it was ideal. I also asked Jesus Navas, David Silva and Nolito how the club and the city was.

“Everything was good! It has great food and beautiful girls.”

Argentinian boss Jorge Sampaoli has made a great impact since moving to European football after achieving great things with Chile, while Guardiola also recommended assistant manager, Juanma Lillo, to Nasri.

“The coach [Sampaoli] came with a great challenge, like what he achieved at the Copa America [in 2015] with Chile.

“I spoke with Guardiola and he told me what a great trainer Juanma Lillo was. This was all I needed to know. It was perfect for me.”
