Hatem Ben Arfa’s agent when he played for OL, Frédéric Guerra is not kind to his former protege, who was sidelined by LOSC after a clash with Tiago Djalo and Jocelyn Gourvennec.
Once again, things go wrong for Hatem Ben Arfa. As in several of his former clubs, the French attacking midfielder sees the situation slipping away from him on the side of Lille, where an altercation with his teammate Tiago Djalo and his coach Jocelyn Gourvennec, after the draw conceded by LOSC against Bordeaux (0-0 ), earned him a dismissal from the group. A prolonged penalty.
How to explain this annoying tendency to clash in a player who, in the past, whether at OM, in England or even at PSG, has multiplied clashes? For Frédéric Guerra, his very first agent, “It bugged psychologically a long time ago, in his childhood”. At the time when the talented but temperamental “HBA” was announced as a future great in world football.
“THE football mess of the 21st century”
“He was the king, the king, the kingExplain on RMC Sport the one who advised him for four years, when the ex-international tricolor was playing in Lyon. He was always told his rights but never his duties. » For him, Hatem Ben Arfa “will remain a huge mess”perhaps even “THE football mess of the 21st century”because the former hope of Clairefontaine had in his eyes the talent of a « futur Ballon d’Or ».
Whose fault is it ? To the player, of course, but also to an entourage who, according to Frédéric Guerra, did not give him the right speech. “His mentor, Michel Ouazine (his adviser and representative, editor’s note), only told him that talent was enough, he assures. Hatem is 35 today, but he will be 17 all his life. He’s a child. » A child whose career may not bounce back after this Lille fiasco.
Ben Arfa, nothing is going right!
Ben Arfa, the scandalous punchline!
