Manchester City defender Kolo Toure is confident Samir Nasri will be stronger from the reception he received on his first return to Arsenal.
Nasri was booed by Arsenal's fans with his every touch during City's 1-0 win over the Gunners in their Carling Cup quarter-final at the Emirates Stadium.
The Frenchman was given a tough time by the home fans throughout the game following his switch to City during the summer, but Toure believes Nasri will learn from the experience.
"He's a strong boy," said Toure. "For me, it was my third time [back at the Emirates] and maybe that's why I've got a good relationship with the Arsenal fans.
"Every time I come here they've been fantastic with me. Samir's very clever and he knows what football is. They love him really, that's why they put him under pressure."
