Ben Arfa vows to bounce back from Pardew snub

20 November 2013 11:16

Hatem Ben Arfa is happy to trust Alan Pardew's judgement on which position he should play as he is desperate for a Newcastle United recall.

The France international has been deployed as a winger and a forward for Newcastle this season, but has watched the last two games, wins over Chelsea and Tottenham, from the bench as an unused substitute.

Ahead of Saturday's home clash with Norwich City, Ben Arfa has spoken of his willingness to continue as a versatility player for Pardew.

He told The Shields Gazette: "I'll play anywhere on the pitch if the gaffer thinks it's best for the team.

"I'll give 100 per cent anywhere he puts me.

"I'm a professional football player – I have to give everything on the pitch. It is the same for all the players.

"I'll play anywhere – just not goalkeeper!"
