Can 72% of French football fans really be wrong about Hatem Ben Arfa

6 years ago

Life and football don’t run smooth for Hatem Ben Arfa at the minute but he is still a big topic of debate on both side of the Channel.

Reportedly training alone with a fitness coach in Paris, Steve Bruce claimed at the weekend that he didn’t even know where the French playmaker was, despite still claiming there’d been no falling out between the pair.

This had come about after the Hull manager substituted Hatem Ben Arfa after only 35 minutes at Old Trafford, then dropped him from all subsequent squads.

Over in France the football public are still intrigued by Hatem, a player with so much talent but can he still do it?

France Football asked the French football supporters to vote on whether they believed Hatem Ben Arfa could recapture the form that he showed when he was an influential player at both Lyon, Marseille and at times at Newcastle.

They asked whether the player still could potentially play at the top level.

The poll found 72% of French football fans said that it was possible that Hatem Ben Arfa could bounc eback and play at the top level, while 28% said that he couldn’t.
