WATCH: PSG president Al-Khelaifi delivers Ben Arfa jokey snub

Rennes ace Hatem Ben Arfa suffered a jokey French Cup final snub from PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi on Saturday.

Rennes completed a stunning comeback in the final, coming from two goals behind before beating the Ligue 1 giants 6-5 on penalties at the Stade de France in Paris.

And following the match as the Rennes squad went up to collect their winners medals and the trophy, former PSG man Ben Arfa was initially snubbed by the club's owner.

The Rennes squad shook hands with officials from both teams on Saturday night but as ex-Newcastle United attacker Ben Arfa — who played at PSG between 2016-18 — went to greet Al-Khelaifi, the Frenchman was initially left hanging.
