Ben Arfa tells Newcastle fans: So much more to come from me

Newcastle United winger Hatem Ben Arfa has told fans they ain't seen nothing yet.

Despite the widespread plaudits he has received from people such as Newcastle boss Alan Pardew - who likened him to Lionel Messi - Ben Arfa still maintains the best is yet to come.

He said: "Naturally it's nice when people talk about you in glowing terms - but I'm not a big star.

"I just aspire to be one. I want to be the best I can and fulfil my own ambitions not just those of other people. I am improving all the time. I have had to contend with a very serious injury when my left leg was badly broken against Manchester City nearly two years ago.

"That obviously set me back but I believe I have recovered well and I am beginning to reach a level that is getting me noticed.

"But people are yet to see the best from Ben Arfa - that is still to come. I know that I can improve, I know that I will get better."
