RSC Anderlecht are planning to sack Samir Nasri over his behaviour during the coronavirus lockdown, as the only player to fail to follow their instructions.
The Daily Mail write that Anderlecht plan to sack Samir Nasri over his refusal to contact the club about his whereabouts during the coronavirus lockdown. He flew off to Dubai and hasn’t contacted his employers since.
Every other player at Anderlecht is following their instructions properly, but one 32-year-old man-child thinks he’s a special case.
The Belgian club ‘don’t really care’ anymore anyway, according to reports. They argue he ‘hardly brought any added value’ on the pitch, and have no plans to exercise the option to extend his expiring contract.
Nasri actually hadn’t made an appearance on the pitch since October. The club were reportedly recovering most of his wages through insurance anyway, so it’s as if he’d already left.
The former Gunner scored one goal in his seven league appearances for Anderlecht. The only one of those matches his team won, he came off 28 minutes into the first half. It’s fair to say the whole experience was a disaster, and he’ll move on now.
