Samir Nasri reveals the biggest regret of his career

Retired from the field since 2020, Samir Nasri has successfully accepted a career as a consultant. Soon to become an essential link in the Canal Champions Club, the former Olympian or gunner reflected on his career during an episode of the new program Detective Mathoux presented by Hervé Mathoux as the name suggests. A chance for him to discuss the biggest regret of his career: not being selected for the 2024 World Cup.

“I don't know how to explain it, but I was full of confidence after a great season and I already saw myself in Brazil”

“I am not the only one responsible for what happened in Ukraine,” recalls the former OM virtuoso. During the 2014 season I have to go to Brazil every day. It got stuck in my throat. I missed the first World Cup in South Africa. Biggest regret in my career? That. If I had been less of a fool? Yes maybe. But I wouldn't be in tune with myself at the end of my career. I prefer to have my own personality, whether you like it or not. Did I enjoy watching the French national team during these two World Cups? I watched with eternal regret. In 2010, I was happy that it happened to show that it wasn't me. In 2014, I really regret because I felt that he could be my competition. I don't know how to explain it, but I was full of confidence after a great season and I already saw myself in Brazil. After 2014 and my international retirement, I was grieving. Anyone who supports being elected is a hypocrite,” he said in comments reported by Foot Mercato.

“He lies as if he were breathing” 😮
