Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has revealed that he did not get along with Samir Nasri during their time together with the Gunners because the Frenchman threatened him.
Their feud reportedly started when Frimpong was sent off in Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in 2011.
“For me, the truth is I’ve never liked Nasri and I will never, ever like this guy. Even if he gives me five billion dollars, I will still not like him,” he told the Athletic.
Frimpong explained how Nasri threatened him after that match.
“I took the phone and then it was Nasri on the phone threatening me, telling me that when he sees me, this that,” Frimpong added.
“I told him, ‘I’m not one of the players that’s afraid of you. If you want us to sort it out as men, we can sort it out as men.'"
“To be honest, at that time when he left Arsenal, I could tell him what I actually thought about him because he was there so I could basically let him know my feelings."
“So I just told him that I don’t like him, I don’t respect him and I will never respect him as a professional player.”
