During an interview with the media Brut, the attacking midfielder of Olympique de Marseille Dimitri Payet revealed himself. From his status as a club director to a possible return to the French team ahead of the World Cup in Qatar, the Olympic captain has shown clarity and kindness.
Payet, the undisputed leader of OM Sampaoli.
Despite a slight drop in pace in 2022, Dimitri Payet is having a great season at Olympique de Marseille. Technical leader of his team, the attacking midfielder stands out as the central part of Jorge Sampaoli’s system and is very decisive, having already scored 10 goals and 9 decisive assists in Ligue 1.
In its cocoon, therefore, the Runionnais retains its rank and now proceeds sensibly. A new facet brought by the former West Ham who, 35, found complete satisfaction.
Payet, like a big brother
During an interview with the media Brut, the number 10 phocen put on the mask and called out his role as manager of the dressing room. Respected for his great experience, but also for his performance on the Canebire, Payet tries to support his young team-mates as best he can, in particular the central defender William Saliba (21 years) or the midfielder Matto Guendouzi (22 years) who, as a reward for their fine performances with OM this season, have recently distinguished themselves with the French team.
With these two talents, the Olympic captain likes to play the role of example, of big brother. I try to calm them down! Since Matteo is a little crazy, he tends to be a little crazy. I try to be, say, the word of the wise. But it’s good, because he’s a winner, he’s a man who wants to move forward. And Willo the same, it’s young people who “young but not young”because they demand a lot from themselves, they know where they want to go, and if they’re with the A’s today, it’s no coincidenceunderlined the number 10 phocen.
The Blues in the head, but…
More poised than ever and radiant in his everyday life, Payet discusses all subjects with remarkable clarity and Olympic composure. Even as he approaches a return to selection. After explaining, with a smile on his face, feeling ready polish Karim Benzema’s shoes to reintegrate the Blues last month, de Marseillais is showing a little more pessimism now seven months into the World Cup in Qatar.It’s like retiring, as long as I have a level in front of me that can be international I’ll think about itassumed the Olympian, who has not worn the Blues jersey since October 11, 2018, and a friendly against Iceland (2-2).
After that, when you see the lists of the selection, you must win this place! There are people, there are beautiful people, so I’m not saying I’ve had my day… but I’ve had my good years on the national team. If you have to come back, I’ll come back, there’s no problem, but if it doesn’t come back, I’m not sorry, the man added to the 38 selections. Given the good form shown by the world champions at the March meeting, Payet will start from afar. However, nothing seems impossible, especially as French coach Didier Deschamps recently confided in leaving the doors open for the Saint-Pierre native.
