West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri: We should've won trophies at Arsenal

West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri says he appreciates his time at Arsenal.

Nasri faces his former club today.

He told Sky Sports, "I enjoyed it a lot because I had a manager there that really believed in me. It was like a second dad. When I look at it I'm happy about my three years there but disappointed at the same time because we had so much quality. It's just a shame that we didn't win any silverware with the players and the team we had, but I had good memories.

"Arsene Wenger made me have this mentality to score goals and to believe in my qualities. From the top of my head, there was this game against Fulham where I scored two really nice goals. We won 2-1 and at the end of this game we were top of the league. The goal against Porto, the goal against Tottenham in the derby. My final season was the season when I scored a lot of goals and it was good."
