Payet loses out on £100,000

France's forward Dimitri Payet arrives tDimi Payet has been questioned by some West Ham supporters about his commitment to West Ham after playing for France last night despite missing the last four competitive games for West Ham with a knock.

However, Payet’s new pay deal means he has missed out on £100,000 of wages after missing the games for the Hammers! Payet earns a £68,000 per week basic together with £25,000 per competitive appearance bonus, so his injury has hit him directly in the pocket.

In theory he can earn up to £125,000 per week made up of goal bonuses, assist bonuses, win bonuses as well other performance related incentives but obviously he needs to play to earn these.

Perhaps it demonstrates to fans that Payet is not only motivated by money and did not want to take the risk in the previous four games for fear of worsening his knee injury.

French manager Didier Deschamps explained Payet’s absence from West Ham: “The way he started this season is a little complicated. He started later and had some little issues physically speaking. But today it is solved, I’m going to deal with him especially during this time with the group because he didn’t start any games with his club.”

  1. There’s not even a debate to be had here Sean , only pant merchants need to reactto you’re post . He is fit and is getting ready for the start of his season after injury . 🙂

  2. I don’t question his loyalty, but if he was fit enough to play 45 mins on Thursday, he was fit enough to play 20 mins against city. That could have got is a point.

  3. It’s the manager who watches him in training and picks the team, if Slav had said Dimi refused to be on the bench then that would be a different matter but there is no indication that has been the case. If I was cynical I might think Dimi wasn’t on the field to minimise another team or teams coming in with a late offer for him, luckily I am not cynical and we can look forward to him helping kick start our season against Watford 😀

  4. Stupid argument from start to finish.Lanzini wasn’t fit for last Thursday but was available Sunday.Should we also question his lack of motivation to play in the Europa League when available for the Premier League match 3 days later.A section of our fans really do have too much time on their hands it seems

  5. Yep I would be gutted to only pick up 68 thousand for not going to work

  6. 4 days is a long time in a fitness programme, Difference between being fit 4 half hour or not. Just can’t believe how many supporters we have that are so cynical,disbelieving and downright pessimistic. never knew we had so many “glass half empty fans”. surely it goes against our whole beliefs. We are always hopeful but if we are realistic we don’t expect to win the league but top 10 and a decent cup run this season and kick on from there.
