What They're Saying: Hatem Ben Afra

"We pulled off a Remontada, but PSG is used to that. One day, like me, Adrien Rabiot will come up against PSG. I have nothing against the club, just those in charge."

-- Hatem Ben Arfa after Rennes came back from 2-0 down to stun Paris St. Germain and win the French Cup final in a shootout, on PSG's history of blowing leads, most famously against Barcelona in the 2017 UEFA Champions League. Ben Arfa is suing PSG for $10 million in damages after club president Nasser al-Khelaifi blacklisted him and kept him from playing for the entire 2017-18 season for making a joke to Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani -- the emir of Qatar, which owns PSG – about Al-Khelaifi. Rabiot hasn't played since December because he won't sign a contract extension and he was recently suspended for liking a video posted on social media by former French star Patrice Evra making fun of PSG's elimination from the UEFA Champions League to Manchester.
