Marseille desperately missing Payet

payetFormer Olympique Marseille defender Habib Beye says his old club is missing Dimitri Payet. Payet left Marseille for West Ham for £10.7m in the summer, where he was their star player.

“Players like Cabella and Sarr cannot be as decisive as Dimitri Payet was last season, but when you lose a player like Payet, you lose quality, so you cannot deny it,” said Beye.

The 28-year-old created more chances than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues last year.

The France international was lethal under Marcelo Bielsa, leading Ligue 1 for assists with 17, while no player in Europe’s top five league created more chances than Payet’s with 135.

Marseille sit in 14th place in the Ligue 1 after 8 games with 8 points, winning two games, drawing tow games and losing four.  Meanwhile West Ham sit in third place in the Premier League with Payet scoring 3 goals and making 3 assists so far since the start of the season with the Hammers.
