Samir Nasri has aimed a swipe at his critics at former club Arsenal after winning the Premier League title in his first season at Manchester City.
The Frenchman was accused of being a mercenary after rejecting a new deal at Arsenal to join City in a £24million deal last summer.
The 24-year-old feels that his move to City has been vindicated after their title success and he has told his Arsenal snipers to 'celebrate their third place achievement', while he 'focuses on winning titles'.
"People at Arsenal tried to make out that I came here for the money," Nasri told French TV station TF1. "I hope they are watching me now collecting my Premier League winner's medal.
"I believe they have not won a trophy for many seasons now.
"If all that I was interested in was money, the easiest decision would have been to stay at Arsenal, picking up my money every week and walking into the team.
"There are many people doing this right now at Arsenal.
"I made the hard choice to come and fight for my place at a big club, where they never settle for second best, and I have proved it correct.
"I now hope the Arsenal fans can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles."
