Samir Nasri was delighted to be on scoresheet in Manchester City's FA Cup win over Newcastle United.

Samir Nasri was delighted to be on scoresheet in Manchester City's FA Cup win over Newcastle United.

The midfielder feared he had suffered a season-ending knee injury when he was carried off on a stretcher at Newcastle five weeks ago.

He said: "I am really happy. When I had the injury I thought my season was over.

"Then they told me I could come back after five weeks. All the staff did a great job with me.

"Then when I came back, the manager, after two training sessions with the team, gave me 30 minutes to play, to get back fitness.

"Then I played a one-two with David (Silva) and I scored. Of course it is something special because it was a 2-0 (win) as well."
