Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri says he quit Arsenal in search of silverware.

With City fighting to make it a league and cup double, Nasri feels the decision to leave the Gunners for City has been vindicated.

"My departure from Arsenal? When you leave for a club where there is more money, you are supposed to be mercenary," Nasri said.

"I took stock before I went to Manchester City, I was joining a club with Yaya Toure, David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez.

"I spent three seasons at Arsenal without any title and at the end of the season we sold our best player that was Cesc Fabregas.

"I don't want to be disrespectful, but I had a meeting with Arsene Wenger who told me to not be worried, he signed Gervinho and he will get reinforcements.

"I preferred to join City and I won titles and indeed I earn a better living. And why not a second national title in three years?

"I am very happy with my choice."
