Hatem Ben Arfa's representative, Jean-Jacques Bertrand, made a clear statement about how Paris Saint-Germain treated his client.
The 30-year-old through a considerable part of the summer transfer window was linked with the departure of the French capital. Interest in his acquisition showed, among others, the activists of Sevilla, Fenerbahçe and Nice. Despite some offers, the offensive player decided to stay in the team vice-champion of France. On Monday their boss sent him back to the reserve team. According to Bertrand, PSG have not been fair to their player.
"We are talking about sport values and respect for contracts. In this regard, Hatem made no mistake. In the meantime, he has been brutally and disrespectfully put away, which is not entirely in line with the ethical code.
"Why? - we would like to ask this question to the head coach, president and sport director, because there were no premises for that. Since the beginning of the previous season there has been no meeting with the president.
"There is no explanation for this situation. Hatem is a talented player and his skills just did not disappear so suddenly. If it's not about sport issues, we can talk about it. He played in every position on which he was exposed. He never complained," the lawyer said.
Let us add that the contract of 15-time France international with PSG is valid until June 30, 2018.
