Newcastle dazzler Ben Arfa: I can win Ballon d'Or

Newcastle United midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa believes he is capable of winning the Ballon d'Or.

Ben Arfa is delighted with the way he's kicked off the season.

He told France Football: "People will think I'm crazy, but I still dream of winning the Ballon d'Or.

"I'm sure it's still possible. In 20 or 30 years, I want my name to be mentioned alongside those of Platini, Zidane, Pele or Maradona."
