Compilation Of Hatem Ben Arfa Shows Just How Good He Could Have Been

Compilation Of Hatem Ben Arfa Shows Just How Good He Could Have Been

When you hear the phrase 'the streets will never forget', it's only right that Hatem Ben Arfa gets a mention.

For all the natural ability he had in his locker, the Frenchman never really achieved what he should have in the game. But he was always incredibly exciting to watch whenever he had the ball at his feet, particularly during that spell at Newcastle United.

After suffering a horrible broken leg injury as a result of a tackle from Nigel de Jong back in 2010, Ben Arfa made a remarkable recovery to produce some scintillating performances in a black and white shirt.

He did struggle for consistency and his stats aren't exactly anything to shout about, but fans have fond memories of the many mazy dribbles and stunning strikes he scored - solo goals against Blackburn and Bolton at St James' Park to name just two.

And thankfully to save us all from boredom in isolation, someone has put together a dreamy compilation of Ben Arfa's best bits for our viewing pleasure.

With highlights like these, he could probably convince his grandkids that he was one of the very best in his heyday.
