Cisse amazed by ability of Newcastle teammate 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."
