[Hatem Ben Arfa on his dream] I know some will think that I’m mad, but I still dream of the Ballon d’Or. I’m convinced it’s still possible. I still believe that one day I’ll be the best player in the world. In 20 or 30 years, I want my name to be mentioned alongside those of Platini, Zidane, Pele and Maradona

[Hatem Ben Arfa on himself] It’s not Leo Messi. It’s Hatem Ben Arfa. It’s me. I have qualities - my own. Let’s not not compare. He plays for FC Barcelona and has the Ballon d’Or. I have nothing at all

[Hatem Ben Arfa jokes about his former club Paris Saint-Germain’s history of falling in comebacks after Rennes came from behind to defeat PSG in the Coupe de France in what was their first cup win since 1971] We pulled off a Remontada [comeback], but PSG are used to that

[Following a disappointing 1-1 draw against Guingamp in the league last month, Hatem Ben Arfa spoke out and appeared to confirm his imminent departure] Guingamp deserved to win. In the game, they were much more ambitious than us. These last matches have allowed me to see my path for next season. My decisions are based on the game. I am not enjoying it and I must be guided by that. What I am offered here is limited, so that directs my choice. The whistles of the public? After what we did this season, I can just say thank you. The group showed a lot of things this year, it was 48 years since they had won a cup, I think, they had never lived a European epic like the Europa League run. I can just say thank you. At the end, when we get whistled, it plays too. When we make a decision, we must take into account the context. There are lots of things that will make me see what I will do next season.
