Injured Dimtri Payet has revealed he was in Paris at the time of the terrorist attacks.
The 28-year-old French man has said he is pleased that the England game against France was allowed to take place at Wembley tonight and hopes that sport can help bring everyone together.
Payet told WHUFC.com: “It is a very difficult time. I was in Paris over the weekend and I was very close to everything that happened.”
“The support that sport can provide in this case and with many important sporting figures showing their support has helped for the game to take place.
“I have seen photos of Wembley in red, white and blue which is very special. Aside from the match itself, it is going to be a very emotional evening.”
On Sunday the player posted a message in French on twitter and instagram saying “All my thoughts to the victims of these heinous crimes. Rest in peace, and all my support to their families. Pray that men find the reason and love each other whatsoever.”
