Newcastle winger Marveaux: Just let Ben Arfa loose!

Sylvain Marveaux believes Newcastle United will see the best of Hatem Ben Arfa if he's given a free role.

Marveaux hopes Toon boss Alan Pardew gives Ben Arfa the freedom to play as he wants.

"Yeah, he plays to his qualities," said Marveaux to the Evening Chronicle.

"When he comes onto the pitch, for him, football is not just about taking the ball and passing it.

"He wants to dribble, he wants to enjoy, you know. He wants to play like he was playing when he was with his friends when he was young.

"That's how he sees football, so you cannot change him. That's him."
