Zidane jumps to defence of Man City playmaker Nasri

French legend Zinedine Zidane says he's a fan of Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri.

Nasri is under pressure for his performances in a France shirt this season.

But Zidane says: "I think we have been hard with him. He has not always excelled, but he has provided good benefits.

"He should be encouraged because he is one of our quality players like Karim and Franck [Ribery]."
