Thierry Henry: ‘Payet is in my top ten’

Dimitri-Payet-605211Sky Sports pundit and Sky Academy Ambassador, Thierry Henry has chosen his top ten players  this season, which include a number of stars from the current top five clubs – Manchester City, Arsenal, West Ham, Manchester United and Leicester City.

His first pick was Hammer Dimitri Payet

THIERRY SAYS: For me it’s his consistency. He is doing it at West Ham, which means he doesn’t play with the calibre of players that some of the other guys on this list play with. Most importantly, West Ham are playing ever so well as a team and Slaven Bilic has done an amazing job to get them together, but I think he’s the brain of the team. I knew about him before and I think West Ham did an amazing job to bring him in. For me right now, because he’s playing every game, because he hasn’t been injured and because he’s been consistent so far, he has to be up there. It is obviously early, but if the season were to stop now, he would be in the fight for best player of the season.”
