- Dimitri Payet was again left on the bench on Tuesday against Tottenham (1-2) and watched helplessly as Olympique de Marseille were eliminated from the Champions League. It’s a bit of a slap in the face for the attacking midfielder.
You should have seen the look on his face when he realised, after a long warm-up, that he would not be playing. Once again.
It’s not just a matter of the team’s performance, it’s also a matter of the team’s performance in the Champions League.
It was to his great despair, but also that of many fans and former legends of the club, who do not understand the decision of his coach Igor Tudor.
The elders were calling for Payet
The Croatian coach preferred to start Luis Suarez, who had been out of form for weeks, while keeping Alexis Sanchez, who was obviously cooked. I’m not sure I’ll be able to do that, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to do that,” he said, “I’m not sure I’ll be able to do that. “We would have liked to see Payet. He is capable of making the decision on an action. We would have liked to have seen Payet. He is capable of making the decision on a move. In these matches, it is a player like that who can make the difference, who can make you win,” added Bernard Casoni on Wednesday in L’Equipe.
It’s no secret that the two men don’t have the best of relationships and Tudor is clearly not a fan of his captain’s profile, but after this new episode, the collaboration between the two men risks taking a new turn. Indeed, it is hard to see how the coach could “get” the mentally impacted attacking midfielder back. “I’m not playing in the Champions League, it’s horrible,” the Frenchman recently told Prime Video. It’s easy to imagine the frustration the former Stephanois must have felt when he was forced to watch helplessly as his team was eliminated…
What future for Payet?
It’s a good thing that we’re going to have a lot more time to get back into the game,” said Niang, who has been in the game for the past two years. “I think the World Cup break will do him good mentally and psychologically, because not playing, playing so little…”, Niang tried to put things into perspective, wanting to believe in a possible “reconciliation”.
It was a great opportunity for the club to showcase their new products and services to the public,” he said, adding that the club’s new website was “a great opportunity to showcase our new products and services to the public”. A departure of the Croatian would obviously reshuffle the cards. It is a good thing that the team has been able to win the World Cup,” he said. “It is a good thing that the team has been able to win the World Cup,” he said.
