Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has lifted the lid on his personal feud with Samir Nasri.

The pair were involved in several altercations on and off the pitch down the years during times when they were both team-mates and opponents.

Frimpong's relationship with Nasri first became fractured after the Frenchman blamed him for Arsenal's defeat against Liverpool back in August 2011.

Emmanuel Frimpong has revealed his disdain for former Arsenal team-mate Samir Nasri 

The midfielder, then 19, was making only his second Premier League appearance for the Gunners, but was sent off in the 70th minute for a second bookable offence with the score goalless. Liverpool made the most of their numerical advantage and went on to win the game 2-0.

'Nobody needed to tell me that what I did was stupid,' Frimpong told the Athletic. 'After the game, everybody came into the changing room and Arsene [Wenger] was quiet. Then Nasri basically stood up in front of everybody and said we lost the game because of me.

'OK, I can understand that, but I was thinking, "Why would somebody — especially me playing, I think that was like my second game — why would any professional do that to a young player in that kind of moment?"'
