Hatem Ben Arfa reportedly turned on Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew for the second week running after defeat to Stoke City. The Evening Chronicle says some senior players wanted to know why Ben Arfa found himself back in the team so quickly following the dressing room bust-up between Pardew and the Frenchman against Manchester United.
However, it is also understood that while Pardew was trying to justify his selection it is thought that Ben Arfa, left, then also had his own say for a second week running in the dressing room.
Ben Arfa is thought to have told Pardew that he was responsible for the decline of players such as Sylvain Marveaux and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.
