The wintry "mercato", which opens on Monday, could give to the aggressor, pushed in aside by the leaders of the PSG, the opportunity(occasion) to bounce somewhere else. But he does not plan to make of present for the club.
Turbulent genius of the round ball, Hatem Ben Arfa became, according to the contrarieties and the sidelinings, a model of placidity and total abstinence. Paradoxically, the perfection of this staggering metamorphosis is to be put in the credit of the leaders of Paris Saint-Germain.
By ostracizing the 30-year-old player, the latter did not think, originally, of engaging such transformation. Anathematized, the French international aggressor (fifteen selections) shows a foolproof Stoicism, even though he did not compete anymore for the slightest official match with the team of the capital since April 5th. And he is not even certain as the interested takes advantage of the wintry market of transfers, which stretches from 1st till 31 January, to try to bounce somewhere else.
Nevertheless, in summer, 2016, arrival to HATEM BEN ARFA'S PSG, which we nickname "HBA" is similar to a revival and to a return to basics. At the end of a sensational season with the OGC Nice (seventeen purposes registered in League 1), the native of Clamart (Hauts-de-Seine) is then the key recruit of the Parisian club. To erase his image of uncontrolled dilettante, he gives up to the sirens of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the Qatari president of the PSG, and joins enthusiastically the armada piloted by the Spanish trainer Unai Emery.
But, straightaway, his coach cuts to the quick him, points his lack of investment in the training and shoot " to improve his physical condition ". In the course of the months, his status becomes precarious: the talented dribbler is relegated on the bench of the replacements, when it is not urged to sit down in forum. In March, HBA expresses its spleen and repeats its will to convince Unai Emery in a kitschissime video shared on the social networks
