Hatem Ben Arfa rejects Nigel de Jong’s hospital visit offer
Thanks, but no thanks
The Daily Mail are reporting Nigel de Jong has been told he will not be allowed to visit Hatem Ben Arfa in hospital while the Newcastle midfielder recuperates from last Sunday’s double leg break.
23-year-old Ben Arfa has been laid up in a Manchester hospital since having surgery to repair the tib-fib injury to his left leg and de Jong – apparently ‘devastated’ by the event, although he didn’t particularly look it last weekend – is said to have wanted to visit him before he goes back up north.
Claims the Mail:
When a City official contacted Ben Arfa’s representatives to arrange an initial visit for himself on Wednesday, he was told Ben Arfa didn’t want any visitors from the club. It is understood that City have instead sent a gift to the hospital and will respect Ben Arfa’s wishes.
What would YOU do in Ben Arfa’s position?
