However, many fans probably got the impression that Samir Nasri did it before the age of 30.
Nasri started his career at Marseille, and it was in this team that he became famous. The then young midfielder made his Ligue 1 debut in the season 2004/05. Gradually, he began to play an increasingly important role at Olympique. As a result, in the summer of 2008, the 21-year-old Frenchman moved to Arsenal.
There, Arsene Wenger quickly found common ground with Nasri, who has joined a solid base of players. However, it was during that period that Arsenal began to decline. The team has ceased to be a real contender for the Premier League title. Nasri could not accept this, and in 2011 he left the Gunners and went to Manchester City.
Already in the first season in the new team, he won the Premier League title. In general, it was the period with the Citizens that was the most prolific for trophies. Nasri won:
- Premier League;
- FA Cup;
- Community Shield.
However, at the same time City began to stagnate i. Coaches have noticed that today Nasri has less and less influence on the club’s live soccer results.
Finally, Josep Guardiola showed him the exit door. After that Nasri went to Sevilla to, as it seemed, revive his career. However, in reality, it was already going down.
In Spain, the player occasionally came to the pitch, although he brought a minimum benefit. Then the contract with City expired and Nasri went to to play for Antalyaspor, West Ham, Anderlecht. But he didn’t play at least 10 matches for any of these teams. As a result, in 2020, the 33-year-old player announced the end of his professional career.
