Gold has just ONE Payet regret

“He insisted on only going to Marseille. It was one club bidding, so that depressed the price. It was £25m instead of maybe £35m.

“I don’t think he handled it very well. Does anybody? I suppose the answer is we are disappointed but we have to move on. There is life after Dimitri Payet.”

Gold admitted the club would prefer to shop locally saying: “David Sullivan, me, Slaven, we prefer English players or players who have experience of the Premier League,” he said.

“That’s why we have just recently moved for two players [Jose Fonte and Robert Snodgrass] with tremendous pedigree.”

  1. Should have no regrets with a £15M profit. If they’d kept him another 6 months he’d be worth less. He had his season in the sun.
