Cisse amazed by ability of Newcastle teammate Ben Arfa

Papiss Cisse admits he enjoys playing with Newcastle United teammate Hatem Ben Arfa.

Ben Arfa has been in dazzling form since the New Year.

Cisse said: "The first time I saw him here, I thought, 'There is something Messi-like about this guy'. The ball sticks to his feet.

"He can run with it - he can do anything with it. It's extraordinary. It's a pleasure to watch him play."
