Speaking to French outlet Le Journal du Dimanche, Nasri said that his 2018 doping incident as a leading cause to his derailed football career.
"An incident really hurt me and changed my relationship with football: my suspension. I found it more than unfair as I didn't take any drugs. It was just an injection of vitamins because I was sick. It stopped me in my tracks," said Nasri.
Nasri reportedly received treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in 2016, breaching World Anti-Doping Agency rules.
Nasri made the big move to Arsenal from Marseille in 2008 and donned Gunners colours for three years, before moving to the Etihad Stadium to play for Manchester City in 2011.
At City, he managed to win two Premier League titles and a League Cup.
