Ben Arfa 'wants Newcastle stay'

Hatem Ben Arfa has insisted he wants to stay at Newcastle, ESPN has reported, with the midfielder admitting he doesn’t know why manager Alan Pardew has left him out of the team in recent games.

Ben Arfa admitted that he and Pardew had rowed after the Magpies were beaten 4-0 at home by Manchester United but said he was fit and willing to play. The former Marseille playmaker added, however, that he would respect the manager’s decision.


“I don't know why I'm not playing,” he said. “You have to ask the manager. After the defeat against Manchester United, we had a strong exchange of words, but that is it.


“He doesn't want me to play. I respect it. If he wants, I will play. I'm here for the club. I enjoy training. I just want to play. I'm fit,” Ben Arfa added.


“If the manager says to me he doesn't believe in me for next season, I want to stay, but if the chairman wants to sell me I have to go. I want to stay here even if the manager doesn't believe in me because I will show him I can play here.”


Ben Arfa has been a Newcastle player since 2010, first moving to the club on loan before later completing a permanent move. He has made 86 appearances for the Tyneside club, scoring 14 times, and said that he is hurt by Newcastle’s poor recent results because of the effect on supporters.


“We have lost too many times, 3-0, 4-0, 3-0. It is hard when you love the supporters, it is hard to lose every time like that,” he continued. “On the pitch I can offer my flair and my creativity. I try every time to do something. I think I can give a lot for the club.”
