Manchester City believe video games are real-life, counting Samir Nasri FIFA goals
Manchester City really don’t have some sort of complex regarding their neighbours Manchester United. Honestly.
That’s why, upon completing the signing of Samir Nasri from Arsenal, they immediately published a mock-up of him scoring his first Manchester City goal. Against Manchester United, naturally.
The image features graphics from FIFA 12 and appeared under the strangely deluded headline: “Samir Nasri scores first City goal.”
Alas, City’s home game against United doesn’t arrive until April, so Roberto Mancini has to wait for quite a while before Nasri will make an impact.
City’s website said: “On the day we’ve welcomed Samir Nasri to City, our partners EA SPORTS have put together this commemorative image of a virtual Nasri scoring his first goal. The picture has been created using an early version of the upcoming FIFA12 game – so you get a sneak preview of the game visuals as well as Samir in the new kit.”
No need, City.
