Jealous Premier League fans have resorted to accusing Dimitri Payet of being a ‘one season wonder’ at West Ham suggesting his form will never last. Green eyed rival supporters should read Payet’s impressive record over the past three seasons before joining West Ham in the summer before they open their mouths.
In the 2012/2013 season while at Lille Dimi started 37 games managing to score 12 goals and make 13 assists.
In 2013/2014 season he moved to Marseille where he started 30 games where he scored 8 goals and made a more modest 6 assists. In his final season at Marseille, last season he again started 30 games scoring 7 goals while making 17 assists (the most assists in France and fourth in all European major leagues behind De Bruyne, Fabregas and Messi but ahead of Ronaldo). He also created 135 chances, the highest in all European major leagues by a long way.
Sure the Premier League is a big step up from the French Ligue 1 but Payet but he seems to be doing just fine with his 9 goals and 8 assists from 24 games. Thanks for asking though!
