Samir Nasri motivated his side and fans in a recent press conference as he believes that Manchester City gave too much respect to Barcelona in last year Champions League fixture, Barcelona thrashed City by 4-1 on aggregate and City faced the criticism of defensive approach at Camp Nou.
Nasri speaks ahead of the clash between Manchester City and Barcelona “I think we respect them too much but we weren’t experienced enough to compete with a club like this.
He further said “They know how to win a Champions League.I think it was too much of a big game. This year is totally different. We know what we are capable of. We will respect them but we wont be scared.”
Nasri also commented on Barcelona attack trio, He said that Suarez and Neymar are on the same level of Sergio Aguero while Messi is from another Galaxy. “I think Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo play in their own galaxy”
“He further said that “For us it was first time we went through the Group Stages, I think it was too much of a big game for us”
Nasri also Urges his Team Mates to Create History this Year against Catalan Giants.
City are well organised this year and perhaps can create pressure on Barcelona at Etihad stadium, A win for City on home turf will definitely put pressure on Barcelona in the second leg.
