Former Arsenal and Manchester City star has decided to retire from football.

Former

Arsenal

,

Manchester City

and France midfielder,

Samir Nasri

, has decided to call time on his football career and hang up his boots at the age of 34.

Nasri first appeared in Marseille as a promising talent and then spent almost a decade in the Premier League with teams such as Arsenal and later Manchester City.

Nasri had a good run with City, as he managed to win two Premier League titles and an EFL in his time with the Citizens. He later played for Sevilla, Antalyaspor, West Ham and Anderlecht and had been without a team

since last

year.

The 34-year-old, who is now a pundit on Canal+, claimed that getting banned on doping charges in 2018 and being away from football for six month entirely changed his career.

"One episode hurt me badly and changed my relationship with football: my suspension,"

the Frenchman said on Canal+.

"I found that more than unfair, I had not taken any doping product. It was just an injection of vitamins because I was sick. It cut me off in my tracks."

A year ago, Nasri responded positive to a request from his former teammate Vincent Kompany to play for Anderlecht in Belgium.

But things did not go as planned, as the domestic league was suspended due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, and former France international was forced to terminate his contract with the Belgian side.
