Samir Nasri is outraged at the being named in the Valbuena sex tape scandal, after a report claimed he was involved.
Valbuena held a lengthy interview with Le Monde on Friday, in which the newspaper mentioned Nasri’s name as being involved in the investigations.
And Nasri, who says he is not friends with Valbuena is vexed at being linked with the scandal.
“The fact that he is putting me in this situation… I will have a discussion with him,” Nasri told RMC. “Honestly, I do not care about this sex tape story. It is not my problem, not my situation.
“He is the victim, but he must not bring my name out. We are not friends. We will never be. But other people’s misfortune does not make me happy.”
Meanwhile, the French Football Federation (FFF) has announced it will file civil proceedings in relation to the case involving Valbuena and Karim Benzema, who has been charged with complicity in the attempted blackmail.
Sylvain Cormier, Benzema’s agent, has protested his client’s innocence.
Parties such as the FFF are able to bring a civil action and make a claim for compensation under French law if they feel they have suffered damage or injury.
“The FFF has decided to be Partie Civile in the Karim Benzema/Mathieu Valbuena case,” its statement read. “The FFF reserves the right to take the appropriate measures subject to the evolution of the case.”
