Dimi Payet finds the target as perfectly with his important announcements as he does with brilliant free kicks.
And his declaration in this morning’s media that he is be 100 per cent at West Ham and will definitely be staying at the club could hardly have come at a better time.
Here we are in the middle of negtoiations for a top striker along with reports that a central defender is required and Europe’s top man reveals: “I’ve heard about all the interest and I’m flattered.
“But I love West Ham. We had a fantastic season and I can’t wait to play in the Olympic Stadium.
“I’m 100 per cent staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that.”
Just imagine what sort of encouragement that may be to players considering a move to the club right now or in the immediate future.
They really should be thinking that if this club is good enough for a player of Dimi’s quality then it is certainly good enough for them.
I have written several times that I had no doubt the genius midfielder would be at West Ham this season and for some time to come and the fabuous Frenchman has now put everything to bed.
I don’t think I’ve felt as comfortable ahead of a West Ham season for many years and this morning congratulate the club on landing one of the biggest bargains in theirs – or any club’s history.
And a huge well done to the manager who in developing a perfect relationship with his star man has displayed an object lesson in man management.
Onwards and upwards you Irons and thanks Dimi for allowing us to sit back, relax and look forward!
