Speaking to Canal Football Club last night, OGC Nice President Jean Pierre Rivère was asked about the possibility of a return for Hatem Ben Arfa, who left Les Aiglons last summer for PSG, where he has struggled.
“I like the player and the person a lot. But Hatem is no longer 20, he is 30. If we play to his strengths, which I think we did very well, we can make him shine. Bring him back to Nice? I do not know, you would have to ask PSG. But he is someone who we could look at, yes. Like Mario Balotelli, Hatem Ben Arfa is an appealing player who would fit easily into our squad.”
