Steve Bruce admits he doesn’t even know where Hatem Ben Arfa is

6 years ago

Steve Bruce has admitted that he doesn’t know where Hatem Ben Arfa is.

The Hull manager had insisted there’d been no falling out with the player despite him subbing the playmaker at Old Trafford after only 35 minutes, then dropping him totally from the subsequent squads.

However, those claims are now looking a bit threadbare after Bruce was forced to admit he didn’t even know the player’s location at the minute.

This follows reports in France that Hatem Ben Arfa is training with a fitness coach over there as he waits to see what the future holds.

“I don’t know if Hatem is in Paris, that’s the truth.

“As for not playing for Hull City again, at the moment he is not in the squad.”

Hatem hasn’t earned the right;

“The transfer window opens in January, so there are still conversations to be had with him.

“But at the moment he is not in the squad and he hasn’t earned the right to be in the squad.”
