Hero of the victory of Olympique de Marseille on Friday in Reims (1-3), Dimitri Payet was kindly mocked by Alvaro Gonzalez at the end of the meeting.
The Olympique de Marseille has resources. Led to the score and deprived of their main beam in the midfield after the premature exit of Boubacar Kamara, the Ciel et Blancs nonetheless reversed the situation to win 3-1 and confirm their recovery. Returned to fifth place in the Ligue 1 standings pending the result of RC Lens, OM can thank Dimitri Payet.
With two goals and a decisive pass, the Reunionese is indeed the first architect of this success in Champagne. A capital performance that marks its return to the fore after disappointing performances that his coach did not fail to highlight. But Alvaro Gonzalez is not surprised by this awakening. “As he says himself, today he is thin, before he was fat. Dimitri is very strong, especially mentally. His career speaks for him. We need him to win matches ”, greeted the Spanish defender.
And the former Villarreal was not the only one to highlight the performance of the number 10 Olympian. It was the same with Jorge Sampaoli. ” We find the Payet we already knew with this jersey, rejoiced the Argentinian technician at a press conference. He knows that with his talent, he has a great responsibility. He will have to continue to live up to what the club needs. He’s getting better and better, he’s happy on the pitch, he’s playing with more intensity. “
