The elite sport It’s harder than it looks Strict schedules, hard workouts or a diet measured to the millimeter are some of the routines that athletes must follow on a daily basis to be able to perform at your best in your profession. For that reason, it is not uncommon to discover how a former footballer, a few months after leaving the competition in action, takes on a few extra pounds … but, without a doubt, the transformation of Samir Nasri It is one of those that leave a mark.
The French footballer is one of the greatest talents of Gallic football of the last years. Until just a month ago, whoever was a player for Manchester City or Sevilla, among other clubs, he was a professional soccer player. He intended to continue playing for a couple more years, but the lack of offers ended up demotivating him and he decided to announce his retirement. That happened a little less than 30 days ago … and, therefore, the image that has transpired on social networks has impressed.
It was this Wednesday when Nasri publicly reappeared after announcing his retirement from football. It was about ‘Match of Heroes’, a charity game of soccer legends that pitted former players from Marsella Olympic with a combination of Unicef, in a match in which players such as Desailly, Radanelli, Pires, Abidal, Kluivert, Cambiasso O Mendieta, among many others. But the image of the night was left by Nasri.
In a obvious under form and very overweight, the image of what was a great talent in French football less than five years ago generated a great impression on social networks. Not only because he was a player who, when he was a professional, was very fine and stylish but, especially, because this physical deterioration has occurred in just under a month, because until that moment, the ex-midfielder was willing to continue playing.
At 34, Nasri can boast of having been one of thes players with more quality in three quarters of the field of world football: Olympique de Marseille, Arsenal and Manchester City gave him their best years, to give his last quality blows at Sevilla. From there, his last chances at Antalyaspor, West Ham United and Anderlecht did not come together. A player who had everything to get high but that was twisted on the road to success.
