Former Manchester city manager Roberto Mancini recently criticised Samir Nasri for the attitude he has shown since joining the club from Arsenal in a £ 25 million deal a few years ago. Mancini was the manager who brought him to the Etihad stadium.

However, it became clear after just 12 months that the pair fell out with each other. There is even suggestions that Nasri could have been sold in the summer had Mancini stayed on as the manager of the club. Instead, he was replaced by Manuel Pellegrini in the summer.

The Chilean has got the best out of Nasri this season and the Frenchman has been one of the best players in what could still prove to be a double winning campaign. City have already lifted the League Cup and they are in contention to win the league title.

Nasri says that Mancini is a different person before buying a player and a totally different person after buying the player. He says that the dressing room tantrums after a loss made it difficult for players to explain it to him what went wrong. Further, he told the bresil mexique cote statistics site that Mancini never listened to the players who were not part of the starting eleven.

"How I can say it without being rude? He's a different person when he wants you and when he has you. When he wanted me, he was calling me every day, telling me everything I wanted to hear. I arrived here and for me it was a shock. He was really, really the opposite of Arsene Wenger. Not even a 'good morning.’ Sometimes when you play he comes and talks to you. If you don't play he doesn't talk to you for three or four months. It's never his fault,” said Nasri, who has already lifted the trophy with City.
