Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini has taken aim at Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri. Mancini slammed him for accepting the "minimum" when he played under him at the Etihad Stadium.

"Samir is a player who has incredible qualities but a productivity that bears no comparison with his talent," Mancini told the Manchester Evening News. "He didn't understand that you always have to give your best.

"It really pains me. I did everything so that he'd come and he settled for the minimum. He's a player who has the ability not to be a good player but to be a world-class player. What a pity that he won't even play in the World Cup."
