Samir Nasri has apologised for his foul-mouthed outburst at the media in the wake of France’s exit from Euro 2012.

Nasri, who joined City in a £25m deal last summer, allegedly fired expletives at French football reporters following France’s 2-0 quarter-final defeat by Spain.

Reports in the French media claimed Nasri could be handed a two-year international ban by the French Football Federation for his outburst.

But Nasri dismissed the claims via an apology posted on his Twitter feed. “Too many untruths circulate at the moment,” he wrote. “May the fans, and the children in particular, know that I regret sincerely that my words may have shocked.

“I love the France team, I love football and I have deep respect for the fans. For the rest, it’s a personal matter between me and some journalists. I will explain myself in due time.”
