Samir Nasri hopes those who thought he moved from Arsenal to Manchester City purely for the money will think again as the France international claimed a Premier League winner’s medal.

Samir Nasri hopes those who thought he moved from Arsenal to Manchester City purely for the money will think again as the France international claimed a Premier League winner’s medal.

Nasri maintained throughout that sporting ambition drove him to the North West while the Gunners ended the season empty-handed.

"I am happy at Manchester City because I have my first title," Nasri told France Football. "Along with my representatives, I have always been convinced that I made the right decision in joining City.

"Even though I didn't play all of the time, I knew that I could improve as a player at City and win titles.

"The controversy regarding my decision was surprising. When you see a squad that includes the likes of (Carlos) Tevez, (Sergio) Aguero, (David) Silva, Yaya Toure and (Vincent) Kompany, you cannot say that I didn't move for sporting reasons.

"I still believe that City are the club of the future. We hope to prove that next season, because building on success is the most difficult thing to do.

"We just need to improve in the Champions League. Some players didn't have the experience required last year, but next season will be much better."
