Man City star Nasri: Worst part of being a footballer is...

Samir Nasri has stated that the worst part of being a footballer is having to deal with the constant media attention.

Manchester City midfielder Nasri has made a number of negative headlines throughout his career and he does not particularly enjoy the best of relationships with the French public.

Nasri has now gone on to speak regarding the constant scrutiny players find themselves under and has stated that fame is the worst part of being a footballer.

The Frenchman told FourFourTwo: "The worst part of being a footballer is the fame because you're not always in a good mood to talk to your fans or take a picture or sign autographs – when you don't win a game, you feel about yourself, you are sad, and sometimes people don't really understand it.

"The fame might be a problem sometimes."
