Hatem Ben Arfa gave an extensive interview to L’Équipe which was published yesterday. With further extracts to follow throughout the day, here is what the current OGC Nice attacking midfielder had to say about his difficult time at Hull.
“At Hull, I was in the bottom of a hole. I really reached the bottom. I could only see darkness, I was in a nightmare. For me, it was all over. I saw myself as a fallen prospect, like many before me and then I said to myself that I could not accept it. But it was very, very difficult to lift my head up again. So yes, you could call this a miracle. Because I fought: I really fought.”
