OM: A thunderclap to be expected for the future of Payet?
Posted on September 12, 2022 at 02:00 by Guillaume de Saint Sauveur
Now confined to a role of luxury substitute at OM since the appointment of Igor Tudor as coach, Dimitri Payet has therefore completely changed his status. An evolution which could therefore logically, in the long run, end up encouraging him to change air before the end of his career.
Asked at a press conference last week, Dimitri Payet (35) had made a clear announcement about his future at theOM : “ Since I left West Ham I haven’t moved and I don’t plan to move “, clearly indicated the French international, who therefore has no intention of leaving theOM with a contract that runs until 2024 and a retraining offer already on the table and formulated by the former management, with Jacques-Henri Eyraud. But the context has changed a lot over the past few months for payet.
Payet, luxury replacement at OM
The number 10 of theOM was once again a substitute on Saturday when going to challenge the LOSC (2-1 victory), not having even been entitled to the slightest minute of play in this meeting. And his trainer Igor Tudor explained in the post-match press conference: This is the joker question on Payet, like at every conference… Whether we win or lose, it’s always the same. It gets a bit repetitive. I congratulate those who played. Dimitri Payet, I see him in a good moment. He feels good, like Gerson and the whole team “, explained the coach of theOM.

” I talked with him “
You sleep make sure there is no problem with Dimitri Payet, and that it simply applies a classic turn-over to theOM : “ There are a lot of games, everyone is important, especially when you play every three days. I spoke with him, I explained my plan to him, he agreed with me. (…) He is a strong player, he feels good, he is positive in training “, continues You sleep.
A questionable future
However, it is difficult not to imagine that this situation will end up, in the long run, by tiring Dimitri Payet which was nevertheless a major element of the project McCourt since his return toOm en January 2017, for €30 million. And despite the explanations provided by his coach, the French international could therefore be led to ask questions, especially since it has been announced in recent months that Pablo Longoria considered selling payet to downsize its workforce. Case to follow.
