Former Newcastle United playmaker Hatem Ben Arfa has been making the headlines this morning after lifting the lid on his final days at the club.
The 28-year-old was released by the Magpies in January after falling out of favour at St James’s Park, having been made to train with the club's Under-21 side during his final weeks at the club.
In an interview in France, Ben Arfa has described it as a "nightmare" and a "terrible humiliation".
He has netted seven times in 13 appearances for Nice this season which has earned him a shock recall to the France national squad.
Ben Arfa is quoted as saying: "It was a period very, very difficult.
"The worst of my career. It was a hell began to Newcastle.
"There, on the first day back in August 2014, I was placed directly with the reserve. A terrible humiliation.
"Weeks passed and I was always with these young sixteen, seventeen years on land away from those pros. I did not understand.
"They gave me a nightmare. It was full of little cheap shots."
Meanwhile, West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been linked with a return to Newcastle United.
But Newcastle would have to break their club record transfer fee to land 26-year-old Carroll and bring him back to Tyneside.
