Samir Nasri has hit back at his critics and insists there are too many ‘non-truths circulating’.
The Manchester City midfielder has been vilified for his part in France’s failure at Euro 2012, following a foul-mouthed rant at journalists after their quarter-final defeat to Spain.
But Nasri insists he has been unfairly portrayed as the bad guy and has vowed to tell the truth about the incident.
He tweeted: “There are too many non-truths circulating at the moment. The fans and especially the children should know that I sincerely regret that my words could shock them.
“I like the French team, football and I have deep respect for the public.
“Otherwise, this is a personal matter between me and a few journalists. I will explain when the time comes."
