Samri Nasri has been banned from football by Uefa for the intravenous drip treatment he received from a Los Angeles Clinic.
On a holiday in December 2016, the French midfielder received 500 millilitres of sterile water that contained micronutrients. After concluding an investigation, Nasi received a six-month ban for the offence.
Nasri received treatment from a private medical company, Drip Doctors, in his hotel room. At the time it attracted significant controversy when their account tweeted a photo of Nasri, which saw his personal account tweet several explicit tweets which were later deleted. It was alleged the tweets were actually sent by his ex-girlfriend. The former Arsenal and Man City player claimed his account was hacked at the time.
My account got hacked sorry about what happen earlier

Nasri is currently without a club, having left Turkish side Antalyaspor in January. As reported by the Telegraph, his lawyer confirmed the ban but disputed initial reports that he was handed a year ban.
Nasri is now 30-years-old and enjoyed a successful early career with Marseille, Arsenal and Man City. However, he fell out of favour in Manchester and moved to Spain for a loan spell with Sevilla. Reports had suggested he was in line for a return to the La Liga but that now looks unlikely.
