Nasri’s improved form down to growing maturity

Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri believes that the reason behind his improved form for Arsenal is his growing maturity.


The Frenchman scored twice against Fulham on Saturday to ensure 3 points for his side. According to Fulham manager Mark Hughes, he was the the difference between the two sides.

The 23 year-old said: "When I’m in front of a goalkeeper I am more relaxed now.
"Before I felt too much pressure to score, I wanted it too much maybe. Now I don’t worry as much.
"I’m more at ease in the game and I’m not just looking for goals, I’m looking to work for the team.
"I think I’m more mature in my football game. I think more with my head."

Arsene Wenger praised Samir Nasri saying:
"Many people questioned me when I took him here but he is showing that he is an exceptional talent and I think there is more to come from him."
