Citizens midfielder claims he is now settled at his new club, improving every week and is looking forward to the title run-in and possible success in Europe
The Frenchman joined the Citizens from Arsenal last summer, and has come under criticism for not having the level on impact on his new side’s performances that he garnered in north London.
The 24-year-old insists that once he had adapted to City’s style of play, he began to improve and plans to continue improving for the rest of the season.
“I’m feeling more settled and you will see a better Samir every week,” he told the club’s website.
"I'm confident in my quality. You will see that. I never asked Man City to pay £24 million. It was a lot of money, but every transfer has a lot of money. You want to give something to those people for bringing you here, but the money? That's not my problem.
“At Arsenal I was playing a bit higher up the pitch, but at City I play further back. I’ve never doubted I made the right choice in coming here.”
Nasri also said the squad are fully focussed on Premier League and the Europa League success this season.
“We are a squad who are hungry for success and want to win titles. Some of us haven’t won anything before and that’s why we came to City.
“Manchester United are contenders for both trophies too, but we expect no less. It would be fantastic if we had a Manchester derby for the final [of the Europa League] but we haven’t even beaten Porto yet, so we are only thinking of them.”
Whilst at Arsenal, the midfielder was involved in two comfortable victories over Porto, but believes they are a stronger team this time around.
He added: “They are very dangerous, especially on the counter attack. We have an advantage but we need to be careful.
“They have more experience than the side I faced with Arsenal and have a different manager and players, so we know it is only half-time in this tie.”
