â€œThe season is long and there will be matches every three days," said Nasri.
â€œIâ€™m not afraid of competition â€“ it makes it better. And ask Didier Deschamps. Iâ€™m not sure he will want players at the World Cup who play 70 games this season â€“ it will take freshness. Weâ€™ll see.
â€œThis season, Iâ€™m really hungry. I have gone on as first replacement in every game. Being a substitute does not worry me. I had a discussion with Manuel Pellegrini and Iâ€™ll see what happens. Anyway, his training sessions are really something! I will do anything he asks."
