Another game, another squad omission, making it three times in the space of a week that Hatem Ben Arfa has failed to be selected in the PSG squad.
Having missed encounters with Arsenal and SM Caen due to manager Unai Emery’s decision to drop the player for “footballing reasons,” Ben Arfa now faces some difficult days ahead, having been omitted from Les Parisiens’ Coupe de la Ligue squad to face Dijon, as he reflects on his decision to join PSG this summer.
According to sources contacted by GFFN, the player does not work hard enough in training in Unai Emery’s estimation, with the statistical data on a player’s physical exertion during training sessions apparently backing up this sentiment.
The player’s camp have spoken to multiple reporters over the last week, making it clear that although Ben Arfa intends to fight for his place in the squad and then of course in the starting XI, that the former OGC Nice man has contacts in England and Spain about a possible loan deal.
Did HBA make the wrong play?
