Samir Nasri has reacted with disappointment to Roberto Mancini's quip that he wanted to "punch" the French midfielder due to his inconsistency.

Nasri also aimed a swipe at Mancini by revealing Arsene Wenger was the best manager he has worked with and that if his fellow Frenchman was in charge at City he may not have experienced the problems he has this season. "Arsene Wenger is the greatest coach I've worked with," added Nasri. "If I'd worked with Wenger at Manchester City, maybe I would have avoided some problems. "Arsene Wenger is the one who understood me most, with whom I had the greatest affinity. I'm very grateful to him as he signed me after perhaps my worst season at Marseille when I had a bout of meningitis. He played a huge role in my career."
