Ben Arfa should be making his Newcastle United debut, at some point in the game tomorrow against Blackpool at St. James’ Park.
Ben Arfa – a message for the fans – I want to play for them
And Ben Arfa has let everybody know over the last two weeks, since he’s been in training with the Newcastle squad, that he cannot wait to make his debut in front of 50,000 fans at the famous St. James’ Park.
The on-loan Marseilles winger has been training well at Newcastle, according to manager Chris Hughton, who seems to be a fan of the lad’s significant skills.
Once he starts playing for Newcastle, we have to hope he will show good form, and he will no doubt be watched by the French Football Federation, as he looks to start what we hope will be a great career for the Newcastle United club.
Ben Arfa was not selected in the French squad in their recent European 2012 qualifying games against Bosnia and Belarus, but the lad is still keen to play for his country in the future.
Ben Arfa told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Obviously I am hopeful of playing for France again in the future, but making my Newcastle debut is what I am focused on at the moment.”
“Now I am here I want to show everybody what I can do. I’m fully fit and ready to go.” “To be given the chance to play here is the most important thing for me.”
Ben Arfa is still considered to be a bad boy in France, and it looks like there will be a few French football correspondents at Newcastle to report on the game tomorrow, and we assume Ben Arfa will make his debut in the game.
The former Lyon player also had a message for Newcastle fans, specifically about why he left Marseilles this summer:
“I wanted to leave Marseilles because the coach wasn’t being particularly fair with me.” “I wanted to come to Newcastle and it is important that the fans understand that.”
“I want them to be clear about the fact I wish to be here to play for them, and that all of the stories that people hear about me are not always the truth.”
We cannot wait for this lad to play for Newcastle, and we just hope he can bring his fine form to Newcastle quickly, as he’s certainly a player who has been blessed with tremendous and sublime skills.
