Ben Arfa Talks About His Great News and Launches Website

9 years ago

Hatem Ben Arfa must be loving the way things have come together for him and fair play to him because it was such a serious injury to come back from. Now the player, the Newcastle fans and the French football public are reaping the benefits.

“I’ve just found out my pre-selection for the Euros. I feel great personal satisfaction from achieving this main goal and wish to express my full gratitude to all those who supported me in recent months. Personally, these eighteen months without being in the French team felt like an eternity. Since I started playing football, I have had a special relationship with the shirt that I wore for the youth teams.

At this moment in time, I am not forgetting my friend Baccary Sagna. Despite his great form, he will miss the Euros, the victim of a serious broken fibula last Saturday with his club. With all my heart, I wish him to return quickly to the international team.

I will go to the Euros with humility and collective ambition. The team must truly believe in its chances because the competition is very open”.

Hatem Ben Arfa hasn’t just been busy on the pitch, he has also launched his very own website , initially only available in French but with an option in English coming soon. Ben Arfa used his website to give his selection statement and great to see him thinking of his injured teammate at a time when he must just be buzzing with regard to his own circumstances.
