Nasri and Chamakh abused by laughing Arsenal fans - video
The former team mates made the mistake of walking to the Emirates on Sunday
SOMETIMES the life of a footballer is not all it's cracked up to be, and a video of former Arsenal team mates Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh running the gauntlet outside the Emirates goes some way to proving the point.
The pair were, unwisely, walking to the ground before the Gunners' game against Manchester City on Sunday when they were spotted by a group of Arsenal fans.
Nasri is not popular with the Emirates faithful after he quit the club and joined City in 2011, and the supporters made it clear where he stood in their affections. The French international, who was not playing in the game because he was suspended, was told in no uncertain terms what the fans thought of him, and fellow player Chamakh, who is currently on loan at West Ham after two-and-a-half unsuccessful seasons with the Gunners, was given short shrift when he tried to calm things down.
Some of the exchange was caught on camera, but things turned even nastier according to the Daily Mail. "Some video footage of Nasri being abused did appear on the internet yesterday but this did not include the moment when things threatened to become physical," said the paper. "Chamakh, on loan from Arsenal at West Ham, had to intervene when one supporter grabbed hold of Nasri by his coat."
