Posted Sunday, June 24, 2012 by Dailymail

France midfielder Samir Nasri was involved in a row with a French reporter after his team were knocked out of Euro 2012 in the quarter-finals 2-0 by Spain.

Nasri, who came in as a second-half substitute, went through the mixed zone without a word for text reporters after the match.

Asked by a reporter for a quote, he answered: 'You are looking for s***, you are looking for trouble.'

The reporter replied: 'Get lost.'

Nasri then turned back and said 'f*** you' followed by a stream of further abuse, inviting the reporter to have a conversation with him man-to-man.

Nasri had already been involved in a row with the media at the tournament when he muttered 'shut up' after scoring the equaliser in France's 1-1 draw against England in their opening game.
