Man City midfielder Nasri: Pellegrini approach just like Wenger

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri says he's responding to Manuel Pellegrini's calm man-management.

Nasri likens the Chilean to his former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I'm in a better place - and that's what I want. He [Pellegrini] does remind me of Arsene in respect of the way he works.

"He has the same approach in the way he talks to players and tells them when things are good and when they are bad.

"But it is always constructive and you always know what he wants from you, and what he wants you to bring to the team.

"I feel that he trusts me and that he gives me responsibilities on the pitch. When you have a manager like that, you want to repay that sort of faith - and that's what I'm trying to do."
