Man City's Nasri plays down quenelle gesture

Manchester City star Samir Nasri has played down claims that he is anti-Semitic after being photographed performing the quenelle gesture.

The French midfielder made the signal, which is believed to be the Nazi salute in reverse, about two months ago which has come to light after West Bromwich Albion's Nicolas Anelka made the same gesture when scoring on the weekend.

Anelka has come out and explained that he was simply declaring his support for political activist and comedian friend Dieudonne M'bala M'bala, who popularized the anti-Establishment motion, with Nasri suggesting something similar on Twitter.
