Nasri would swap personal awards for title win with Arsenal

Samir Nasri says he'd swap personal accolades to win trophies with Arsenal.

The midfielder reflected on how Arsenal's title challenge tailed off with dropped points against Liverpool, Tottenham and Bolton when he spoke to the Official Arsenal Matchday Programme.

"I don't care if I'm second or even the best player in the league, I would have preferred to win the Premier League," admitted Nasri.

"I have won nothing since I became a professional at Marseille - I have always lost in the final or finished second in the league.

"I think they were three good games [against Liverpool, Tottenham and Bolton] but of course at the end we were left really disappointed in all three. We were leading 1-0 until the 102nd minute against Liverpool; time should have been over.

"We were very frustrated but after that I thought we responded well in midweek against Tottenham, played very well, but once again we were leading 3-1 and ended up not winning the game. If you want to win the title it's difficult to lose many points at the end of games, and that's what happened at Bolton as well."
