Photo Special – Ben Arfa Piling The Weight On? – You Decide

9 years ago

Newcastle United officials were reported to be shocked when Ben Arfa arrived at court this week on motoring offences.

It wasn’t so much the speeding charge etc., the Sunday People reported it was more the fact that he allegedly appeared boated and overweight.

The story is making big news in France today as it is claimed that Newcastle have warned Hatem that he must return for pre-season training in better shape than he is now.

After the shock of seeing his current physique it is claimed that United will monitor Ben Arfa more closely during the close season, which he will spend back in France.

So what is the verdict?

The photo that we have used is one that is being widely circulated in the French media to back up the story, has Hatem strayed too far?
