Hatem Ben Arfa Heading For Suspension

9 years ago

Old mates Samir Nasri and Hatem Ben Arfa were reunited for France in the Euros but now both look likely to be heading for an extended ban from the national team.

Last month we suggested that the much publicised ructions during the tournament were almost certain to lead to disciplinary measure and French FA President, Noel Le Graet, has today announced four players will be called to  account.

The four who are summoned to appear before a disciplinary committee to explain their conduct during the tournament are Ben Afra, Nasri, Menez and Mvila.

It has been suggested the likes of Ben Arfa and Nasri could be handed four match bans or worse to serve as examples to others, though maybe Blanc’s departure as manager will take some heat out of the situation.

Nasri is likely to end up with the heaviest punishment as he exasperated the situation by launching a very public expletive filled attacked on a respected French journalist, in teh aftermath of the original incident at the Sweden v France match.
