Samir Nasri has been with Arsenal for six months but we haven't heard much from the man who has adapted quickly to the cut and thrust of Premier League football. That makes this interview quite a coup for Arsenal TV Online and compulsory viewing for subscribers. In Samir assesses the first half of his first season at Emirates Stadium and tells the story behind the serious illness he suffered while at Marseilles. Samir discusses:

  • why he has settled quickly
  • being a right-footer on the left flank
  • comparisons with Pires and Zidane
  • why he is comfortable in a central role
  • his impressive goals tally
  • his role in the win over Man United
  • being diagnosed with meningitis
  • the loyalty shown by Arsène Wenger
  • criticism of Arsenal this season
  • Hull City and the title race
