Aklan Pardew had some good news about Ben Arfa, and it turns out he is finishing off his rehabilitation at the French Football Federation’s Clairefontaine Academy, which is close to Paris.
Ben Arfa – back soon
And the good news about Ben Arfa is that he is running again in his training, and will be back soon, but the Newcastle manager refused to put a timeline on the lad’s recovery.
Of course Ben Arfa was brought back from his hamstring strain too early at Fulham on 10th December, and although he was great and scored a terrific goal in that game, he obviously damaged the hamstring again, and so he’s going to be out another few weeks – and he’s already missed six games since the Fulham game – and we’ve lost five of them
This is what Alan Pardew said about the French magician:
“It’s better, we’ve had some good news.” “He’s running and we will only bring him back when his rehab is complete. We’re not talking many weeks.”
Hatem has played 14 times this season for Newcastle with three goals and three assists, and whenever he’s in the side, he offers a big threat to the opposing defense.
His total record in all competitions at Newcastle is played 48, scored 10 with 10 assists - and that’s a good record on Tyneside.
Howay The Lads!!
