Bassong bitter with Nasri dive


Sebastien Bassong

Sebastien Bassong has claimed that Samir Nasri dived in order to win Arsenal a penalty against Spurs.

With the score at 1-1 at the start of extra time, Nasri went down under pressure from Sebastian Bassong in the box.

Bassong said: “He went down too easily, I didn’t think it was a penalty.

“He told me afterwards that I barely touched him.

“It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I touched Nasri’s chest but I did not grab him. I have seen the video and from my point of view it was not a penalty.”
