Nine times Hatem Ben Arfa was one of the most exciting players in the world
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.

When he phased David Moyes
This ludicrous free-kick
Just look how the keeper quickly gets up, certain the ball has bounced out.
