Hatem Ben Arfa’s spell in England with Newcastle United and Hull City may have ended acrimony, but the France international has always been entertaining.
Ben Arfa is one of modern football’s great enigmas, with his knack for getting supporters out of their seats matched by getting himself into trouble.
As a result, he has hopped between clubs, representing Lyon, Marseille, Newcastle, Hull, Rennes and PSG since making his debut in 2004.
The 31-year-old may not have realised his full potential, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t given us plenty of thrills along the way.

Just look how the keeper quickly gets up, certain the ball has bounced out.
Plus a beautiful World Cup moment.
A massive pat on the back if you get all of these.
Juventus certainly like a good free transfer.
If Lewy leaves Bayern, someone’s in for a treat.
North Korea’s genius ploy unfortunately backfired.
Plus Fernandinho sticks up for Raheem Sterling.
Of course he meant it. He meant everything.
Only eight have lasted longer than five years.
We’re getting a bit bored of this now…
Xherdan Shaqiri always tries elasticos. He’s fun.
