The France international Samir Nasri, who is currently playing for the Spanish club Sevilla FC, has recently branded the English international Jamie Vardy "a cheat", following the role the Leicester forward played in the Sevilla midfielder's red card on Tuesday night.
On Tuesday night, the England champions Leicester City defeated last season's Europa League champions 2-0 at the King Power Stadium to book their place in the quarter-finals of the 2017 Champions League with a 3-2 aggregate victory.
But the France international Samir Nasri, who is currently on loan to Sevilla from Manchester City, was dismissed after his second booking throwing a head butt at Vardy after the pair had clashed off the ball in the 74 minutes of the game.
On which the 29-year-old France international Nasri has claimed that Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy made the most of the confrontation however, saying he tricked Italian referee Daniele Orsato into sending him off and branded Vardy "a cheat".
As recently in an interview Nasri said, "For me he's a cheat because if he was a foreign player you, the English press, would be saying he's a cheat. For me he is a cheat,"
"They were winning 2-0, play the game like a man. You are not better than us but you are winning 2-0 and will qualify, just play the game.”
"For an international player you don't need to do that. Look at the image. Yes he did it, but he did it well.”
"He played it well. I thought the English players were tougher than that. He is the one who came to my face.”
"I'm surprised but I should have thought about it and not reacted but I'm a man. I see the whole thing, coming out of the Champions League which is a big blow for us. It was just a reaction.”
"It was a foul or something and then he pushed me and I said 'what are you doing?' and then he came to my face. That's what happened."
