When questioned on the difference in his performances for club and country, Nasri told L'Equipe: "It is not only on the pitch.
"It is also trust people give you. At Manchester this season, I have a perfect coach. He reminds me a lot Arsene Wenger. He really trusts me.
"Before (last season), after 50 minutes, I could see the board go up and I know it was for me to be substituted. Not anymore.
"I have a coach that always tells me I am an important player. I can feel it, my team-mates try to play with me on the pitch.
"I can feel it from the fans too. I worked to reverse the general opinion.
"Last year after the (Robin) Van Persie free-kick [in the defeat to Manchester United] I was public enemy number one.
"When there is such a rush on you, you can't be outstanding anymore.
"Trust, it is about 90 per cent of a footballer."
