Dimitri Payet’s declaration that he will be remaining at West Ham 100 per cent and loves the fans in a so called interview with the Sun has turned out to be pure fiction.

According to  Jacques Olivier Auguste, the interview is “pure inventions in the imaginations of a journalist” and simply not true.

The player’s agent spoke exclusively to Daily Mercato and had the following to say: “I am surprised by this information because Dimitri has not done an interview with any media outlet. The only thing that is certain is that he is enjoying his holidays that he deserves and he is licking the wounds caused by the EURO 2016 final defeat.

“So he is only thinking about recharging at the moment. These declarations are pure inventions in the imagination of a journalist. This deserved a response.”

The Sun claimed that Dimitri Payet exclusively told them the following:

“I’m 100 per cent staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that.”

    Ok Jacques Olivier Auguste, but it doesn’t change anything… Dimi isn’t going anywhere, that’s what I want you to keep in your mind. This is my official statement. Lol 😉

    So, who is Payet’s agent? Because the guy you’re quoting isn’t this guy.

  • Ray says:

    Players have many agents.This one is probably not happy if Dimi stays because he can’t get his nose in the money trough from a possible transfer

  • bubs says:

    Why should we believe him any more then the Sun,
    Dimitri will not be getting an offer from Spain so he will be staying put as he can now play CF if he wants because we ain’t got one once AC pulls his sicky
    Keown would be happy with that surgery
