Samir Nasri's career hits a fresh new low - just one month after being made a free agent

Samir Nasri’s career has been on a downward spiral for some time now.

After shining at Arsenal, the Frenchman secured a £25m move to Manchester City, where he lifted two Premier League titles and did show prolonged periods of quality in the north of England.

However, in Manuel Pellegrini’s last season and since Pep Guardiola’s arrival, his City career was virtually over.

Guardiola sent the injury-prone midfielder out on-loan to Sevilla for the 2016/17 season and in the summer of 2017, he was permanently sold to Turkish side Antalyaspor.

However, his time in Turkey didn’t exactly go to plan, with Nasri actually having his contract torn up by the club on January’s deadline day having made just eight appearances for the club.

There were rumours that he could be on for a return to the Premier League with West Ham, but as of yet, no side has decided to take a gamble of the free agent.

And now, Nasri’s career has officially hit rock-bottom, with Marca reporting that the 30-year-old will now receive a one-year ban from UEFA for his controversial incident with the ‘Drip Doctors’.

SURELY, HIS CAREER IS OVER?

Given how far his form and reputation have fallen in recent years, 12 more months out of the game will surely bring an end to his career at the top-level.

The whole Drip Doctors debacle started when the company posted a tweet stating that they had been trying to keep Nasri fit and hydrated with an intravenous drip at their Los Angeles clinic.

It was said at the time that Nasri has not exceeded the amount that would break anti-doping law, but clearly after a UEFA investigation, the Frenchman did indeed bend the rules.

Very rare that a player who was once viewed as one of the best in the world falls to such a low in such a short space of time.
