Newcastle United star Papiss Cisse says his team-mate Hatem Ben Arfa can be as good as Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
"Sometimes with the ball at his feet, he is like Lionel Messi," said Papiss.
"The ball really sticks to his feet. I really like that kind of player.
"He has a great range of skills. He is the kind of player who can make the difference and that is really good for us. He is really good to play with."
